Nurturing and Responsive Relationships

This blogsite has been established to support your reflection and implementation of Nurturing and Responsive Relationships in your Early Childhood service setting. It is through relationships that we come to know our world. Relationships are multi-faceted and involve, in our service settings, children, families, educators and communities.  All relationships require communication, shared information and mutual respect; particularly nurturing relationships that respond to children's needs and interests - as well as those of the families - and celebrate the professional knowledge and personal experiences of those within the service.  

Within the Teaching Pyramid Framework, social and emotional competency development is the key focus.  A large number of children will develop appropriate skills through the implementation and reflection of, and involvement in, Nurturing and Responsive Relationships and High Quality Supportive Environments alone.  For these children, social emotional skills will become part of their development and achieved accordingly.  A number of children will require specific teaching for these skills to develop.  All children will benefit from the intentional teaching of social emotional competencies.  Some children will need it.
Enjoy the links, resources, supports within this blogsite.  Unless specified, the materials have been created, evaluated and researched through the Vanderbilt University in Florida, USA.  For more information, and to attend the Teaching Pyramid training and mentoring within the Riverina Region, contact Sara Stockman, Teaching Pyramid Facilitator, KEIS, for training details.
