TEACHERS at Glen Innes Preschool will undergo training to develop skills thanks to a $2,000 Professional Development Grant, Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall announced today.

 

Mr Marshall said the in-house seminar, provided by Community Early Learning Australia, would improve teacher’s ability to connect with children who display challenging behaviours.

 

“Early childhood education is crucial to a child’s personal development, and this funding will ensure that all youngsters can see the best results possible from preschool,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“As we better understand the unique challenges each child faces, we’re able to adapt teaching techniques to give them the best opportunity to learn successfully.

 

“This seminar will provide practical advice for educators on the best way to identify challenging behaviours early on, responding with an empathetic strategy that can minimise further frustrations.

 

“Through better understanding of a child’s perspective and the development of a youngster’s brain and personality, difficult behaviours can be avoided.

 

“Glen Innes Preschool has also invited teachers from neighbouring towns to join the seminar, ensuring the benefits are spread across the region.”

 

The ‘Under the Volcano’ seminar will be hosted by Glen Innes Preschool in April.

 

Glen Innes Preschool Director Robyn Cartwright said the program would help staff understand the triggers of challenging behaviours.

 

“It’s going to mean we can adapt our teaching strategies to the particular individual, helping our early childhood programs at Glen Innes Preschool and outreach centres” Ms Cartwright said.

 

“This training will help us identify our students’ needs, understand them and provide the best education possible.”
