Supporting Young Children with their Emotions

Audience: Early Years & Childcare
  • Foundation

Supporting children to recognise and name emotions is a core part of the work you will be doing every day to foster children’s emotional well-being. Talking about emotions is a complex skill for young children to develop and involves them noticing feelings and knowing what they mean. It is important that practitioners use a consistent approach to reacting to emotions as well as a model for teaching emotions.

This 20 minute recorded webinar reinforces the importance of supporting children’s emotional development and considers the benefits and use of visual ‘hooks’ such as colours, objects or actions that can be used consistently, by adults and children, again and again to reinforce learning about emotions.
