Go Back with the Basics Make and Take

About this Event
Join us tonight as we breathe new life into some of our childhood favourites. Nursery Rhymes and Fairy Tales often take a back seat to our new friends like Pete the Cat and Rainbow Fish. Come tonight and make some fun props that you can use to make those old standby’s new again. There is a reason that we remember this literature from our child hood.

Growing Leaders

About this Event
What do children need to be successful in life? Research has found that emotional intelligence (EQ) is four times more likely to predict a persons success than IQ. I believe that the best way to prepare children to have successful lives as adults is to foster leadership skills from a young age. This two hour workshop will explore what leadership really is and how leadership skills can be learned at an early age through connection, emotional intelligence, creativity and opportunities for bravery.

Katelyn Moon has been an early childhood educator since 2008. Her passion is to support children in developing social and emotional skills that will grow with them throughout their lives. In 2015, Katelyn returned to school to further her education in leadership, teaching and childcare licensing. Her new education has shaped her views of the importance of teaching leadership to young children.

Growing Strong Girls - Practical Tools for Cultivating Connection in the Preteen Years

About this Event
What is a strong girl? What is happening for a growing girl? The power (and science) of connection vs the pitfalls of disconnection. Tools for connection with her: observation, intention, and action. Cultivating her connection with herself: authenticity, self-care, mindfulness, and life balance. Cultivating her connection with her peers: self-expression, boundaries, social media and screens, and mean girls and girl drama. Cultivating her connection at school and in life: loving learning, turning setbacks into comebacks, motivation, and from surviving to thriving.

REVISTING THE BASICS & COMMUNICATION WITH PARENTS

About this Event
REVISITING THE BASICS To work effectively with children it is necessary – not optional – to understand how a child develops from all perspectives: physical, cognitive, social and emotional. We will explore the typical range of development, how it occurs within the context of family community culture and relationships and gain understanding of the complex interactions amongst developmental domains and the environment as children grow.

COMMUNICATION WITH PARENTS After this workshop you will have a new understanding of your role and responsibilities as a care provider. New strategies for establishing positive partnerships with the parents of the children in you care will be discussed. If time allows we will practice key concepts for positive communication.

CHRISTINE MANN has over 26 years experience working with families and children. Currently she works with the North Shore Child Care Resource & Referral Program as the Child Care Support and Outreach Consultant.

Quality Sleep in Group Daycare

About this Event
Recent social change has resulted in a greater demand for group child care for infants and toddlers. Simultaneously, many sleep issues at group child care centres have become more prevalent among this age group – who are the most sensitive and vulnerable.

This workshop is based on a behavioural approach.

Screen Time & Attention Deficit: Understanding the growing epidemic of inattentive children alongside the rise of technology exposure

About this Event
The nature verses nurture approach to understanding how children develop leads us to intuit that exactly how brain growth and development unfolds most certainly is impacted by the amount of screen-time and technology exposure that children have. In this workshop we will discuss two key reasons why we must protect our children’s (1) hearts; and (2) brains from the impact of screen time (video games, Facebook, texting, social media, etc.). Participants can expect some ideas and strategies to put into place for safeguarding their children around technology exposure, a developmental guide to what is safe and when, and an overall understanding of our role as big people must be for our children as we navigate the technology revolution.

Rebecca Mitchell has a Master’s Degree in Developmental Psychology and is a Registered Clinical Counsellor. She approaches her work eclectically by incorporating aspects of her post-graduate training in the areas of Attachment, Developmental Trauma, Infant Mental Health, and Play Therapy. She joins The Wishing Star team with over 19 years of experience in supporting kids and families in a variety of settings including community based agencies, child and youth mental health, and private practice. Rebecca cherishes the opportunity to work together with both parents and children in addressing challenges related to anxiety, behavior, early trauma and mood difficulties, maintaining a focus of enhancing and strengthening parent-child relationships. Rebecca brings a strong sense of compassion to her work helping big people understand and respond to children in ways that promote a strong relationship, self-regulation and a positive sense of self. As a mother of two boys herself, Rebecca appreciates both the joys and frustrations (!) that come with the role of being that kind of a big person for a child.
