Throughout our lives we must develop our own abilities to self-regulate as we encounter new experiences and stressors. That ability to regulate emotions, to be aware of the differences of the feelings of others, to be calmly focused and engaged in our work is something we continually adjust and adapt in each new environment. In the Kindergarten Program educators work together to support the development of Self Regulation and Well Being in each of their students. In this session we will explore this frame of learning, we will also share ways in which the learning environment helps children to be calm, focussed and alert as well as some ways in which educators might make that learning visible. We will also explore the Faith and Wellness: A Daily Mental Health Resource, created in partnership between the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association and School Mental Health Ontario.
