PLAY THE WIGGLES AWAY – Course Description

In order to support the development of self-regulation in young children, early childhood professionals need to understand the science behind how these skills develop.

In this training early childhood providers will:

  • learn about the benefits of play and how it contributes to the development of self-regulation
  • have an opportunity to practice play-based strategies to promote the development of self-regulation with the children in their care
  • leave this training with the knowledge of how to create lessons that are developmentally appropriate, why this is important, and the ways in which children benefit
