Talking Matters – communication for well-being

ECE services play an important role in growing emotional literacy for tamariki. By creating language-rich environments, including responsive interactions, Kaiako become influential in the well-being of the tamariki. When communication and language are given priority the well-being of teachers and whānau is enhanced too.

This workshop emphasises a whole-of-centre approach. We hold a communication lens over the entire curriculum, positioning responsive interactions as key drivers of well-being. Participants will gain new insights on the importance of equitable language experiences and the power of intentional interactions. Alongside this we will share some of the strategies we use to make meaningful changes to practice.
