The Prime Importance of Personal Social & Emotional Development (PSED)

Audience: Early Years & Childcare
Single session
  • Foundation

Brief Overview

This course is funded by Kent County Council for delegates from Kent-based PVI settings, including childminders and Kent maintained nurseries.

This training builds on practitioner knowledge, understanding and skills at a universal through to targeted level of support. Delegates will consider the impact of early relationships and experiences on babies and young children's sense of self, developing social skills & emotional resilience. The training considers different types of stress, dysregulation, co-regulation and how children's bodies and brains respond. It will enable delegates to make positive changes to their practice by reflecting on different ways to support, model, guide and influence children's developing personal, social & emotional skills and attributes.

Only one delegate per setting can attend each course (additional delegates subject to availability).

Lunch will be provided.
