The impact of trauma on children’s physical, cognitive, and emotional development
Holistic child development as it relates to well-being
Changes in child brain development
The importance of safe and secure learning environments
Teaching strategies that address a child’s holistic well-being.
Early childhood is a critical stage of development and lays the foundation for life. Children experience tremendous brain development between birth and 8 years old. At this age they take in new information that is critical to the formation of active neural pathways. The people and environments that surround children are highly influential at this point in their development. As a result, it is critical that they feel safe and supported in order to grow and thrive. Children of all abilities can only develop optimally if their social, emotional, and educational needs are met. Commitment to such healthy development is the focus of our Health and Well-Being Practice Area.
Over the course of 4-5 hours, course participants will gain a critically valuable understanding of the impact trauma has on a young child’s development. Participants will also learn teaching strategies that address a child’s complete physical, cognitive, and emotional well-being.

The COVID-19 pandemic has touched every part of the globe and has caused disruption in education on a level never seen before. It is estimated that 89% of the student population and nearly 63 million primary and secondary school teachers are out of school.
During a crisis, we need to rely on skills that help us to better understand the situation, our priorities, and each other. Education Diplomacy, a concept developed by Childhood Education International, can be a helpful approach to use at all times, as it encourages working together to resolve education challenges; it can be a particularly helpful and relevant approach to use during unsettled times.
