Development within the first three years of life is exceptionally rapid, and it is built upon healthy, trusting relationships with caregivers. This means that infant and toddler educators have an incredibly important job.
This webinar, hosted by Early Learning Investigations and Ruth Anne Hammond, M.A, will help participants learn more about attachment and how weaving relationships into every learning domain can support growth and development.
In this event, participants will…
Become familiar with the basic neuroscience of attachment, per Regulation Theory and Polyvagal Theory.
Be able to describe how secure attachment supports cognitive, socio-emotional, and physical development.
Be ready to create environments where the adults are free to relax and enjoy being with the children, with confidence that the children will learn what they need to, with joy and curiosity that will go with them into the next stage and beyond.
