Course Summary

Early interactions in infancy and toddlerhood often involve exploring boundaries through behaviors like grabbing toys, pulling hair, or biting. This course delves into the reasons behind these behaviors and equips professionals with positive guidance strategies to help children learn conflict resolution without resorting to harm. Through self-assessment tools, you can evaluate your current practices and identify areas for improvement, ultimately enhancing the quality of care for infants and toddlers in your setting.
