Coaching: An Introduction and Exploration

Tuesday, September 24, 2019
8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Little Canada

Coaching has steadily grown in popularity within both the early childhood and school-age care fields. We know that coaching is only as effective as the person doing the coaching, and yet many of us find ourselves in a position that includes coaching others, without specific training or education for this important role.

Theories and foundations of coaching will be explored. Focus on the skills and techniques of coaching, including active listening, observing and providing constructive feedback. Develop coaching skills that can be blended with your existing personal or professional experience.

Child Development and the School-Age Child
Recorded Webinar - Coming September 2019!
Available for you to watch at your own pace and at the time that works for you

Working with school-age children in afterschool programs can be awesome, but can also be challenging with wide ranges of age and development represented. In order to support the children we work with, it is important to understand the stages of their growth and development. Explore characteristics of school-age children, theories of growth & development, brain development, the effects of stress, practical application, and activity planning.
