Babies, young children, and their families are likely to return or start your provision with mixed feelings about being separated.
This session will help us think together about some of the complexities involved in the settling process and the type of emotionally connected adult/child interactions as well as systems that are most helpful. Whilst reflecting on some of the behaviours you might observe when children and families are struggling to feel settled, this session draws on the science of attachment and puts the relationship between the setting, family, and child at the centre of the work.
The session will be structured around the following questions:
• What do we mean by emotionally connected interactions and why do they help us feel settled?
• Why can emotionally connected interactions feel difficult to put into practice?
• What interaction techniques and systems can we put in place to help us to be more
consciously emotionally connected in our approach?
