Official Course Name: Neuroscience in Early Years
This qualification will support you in helping your child to build emotional resilience as well as teaching them how to process negative emotions such as anger, fear, sadness and anxiety.
What Is Neuroscience In The Early Years?
Neuroscience in the early years involves a field of research that has huge significance to anyone who supports children aged 0-7 years old. This course will introduce learners to the subject and share insights into how an infant's brain develops and how it is affected by a range of external influences.
This course can be considered both a parenting course, child care course and teaching course. This is due to the in-depth nature of the course goes in to support the learner in understanding how they can support a child's development.
Studies on brain activity have found that stress, trauma, and a lack of love and care from adults can have a negative impact on how the brain develops and how this affects children's lives, how they learn and how they behave. On the other hand, loving settings, positive parenting, and affectionate carer interactions all have strong and favourable consequences.
This short online course also explores the topic of self-regulation in the early years. These are a critical set of skills that help support a child's mental development and grow their emotional intelligence. This enables children to handle strong emotions like fear, anger, and sadness while remaining calm, focused, and capable.
Emotional intelligence is a skill that develops over time in children when they are helped by kind and understanding parents and carers to help comprehend their feelings and actions. This is one of the factors that led to the inclusion of self-regulation as an early learning aim for the first time in the new Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) legislative framework.
This course will provide learners with practical information on how to promote healthy brain development in the first seven years of a child's life. It also covers how you can support children to develop emotional self-regulation skills.
Who is this course for?
This course is targeted at teachers, parents and carers within the early years setting.
This is an essential course for anyone working in the childcare industry, as you are working with children under 5 years of age. If you are looking at ways to implement positive child behaviour, this course can be used to help your children build resilience to powerful emotions or moments of conflict. Additionally, it will help you to recognise factors that could contribute to negative emotional development or behaviour problems.
Studies have even shown that supporting your children in reaching important developmental milestones, can have an enormous impact on a child's outcomes in later life.
Parents Of Children
This online parenting course could also support any parent of children between the age range of 0-7 years old.
Everybody has different parenting styles: You could have an authoritative parenting style with strict rules for your child to follow or you could be a permissive parent where you give your child more freedom to make their own decisions and never tell them 'no'.
This course will help you recognise if any factors could contribute to a negative learning environment for your child. For example, neglectful parenting or high parental expectations could affect your child in properly regulating their own emotions.
It is important that children are raised in a happy, healthy environment to allow them to reach their potential as they grow older.
If you're looking to improve your parental support or simply would like to grow some new parenting skills to help promote positive child behaviour in your home.
