Conflict resolution in the Early Years workshop in Agassiz

'Sandbox, Penalty Box, Tool Box' workshop is coming to Kent elementary school

Agassiz Harrison Early Years and Child Care Resource and Referral are proud to sponsor an all day workshop for parents, caregivers and professionals working with young children.

Conflict is an everyday event no matter what age you are and can be very upsetting for many of us.

Conflict can evoke very strong feelings for little ones. How do young children deal with these emotions and communicate their needs especially if they do not have the tools or the vocabulary to express them?

Through thoughtful guidance we can teach our small children how to navigate the world of conflict.

Sue Ogroske, a professional in the conflict resolution world, is guest speaker and she will help you teach your child this lifelong skill.

Ogroske has 25 years of experience working with and training people how to resolve conflicts in a way that invites inclusion, harmony and community.

Her breadth of experience spans from health care, Community Living and policing environments.

Ogroske has tailor made this workshop for the early years, however, much of what she will be talking about relates to all of us.

She will give us opportunity to reflect on our own emotions and abilities in managing conflict in order to prepare us for teaching the skills to little ones.

If you would like to foster emotionally intelligent environments in family and childcare settings, and learn strategies to equip young children with tools for self-regulation of their emotions, behaviour and social interactions then this workshop is for you.

The workshop, Sandbox, Penalty Box, Tool Box: Conflict Resolution in the Early Years will be on Saturday, May 28 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Kent Elementary School in Agassiz. Refreshments and lunch will be provided. Free childcare will be provided on site for children three years and up. Please register at the Agassiz Library or Agassiz Harrison Community Services. There will be a $5 charge to help cover costs for the event. If you would like more information on this event you can contact Kim Verigin at AGHS_ECD@yahoo.com, or to find out more about Sue Ogroske visit sueogroske.ca.
