The BC Early Learning Framework is a piece of government policy that sets forth best practices for working with children in the early years age group. According to the BC ELF (2019), “supporting the holistic development of children with care and empathy is a strategic priority for reducing inequalities and enduring children well-being” (OECD, 2018, p. 4). In this workshop participants will be presented with information on the qualities of empathy and positive relationship-based guidance while also being asked to critically reflect on their personal guidance philosophy. We know 'time out' does not work but in ways this practice is still being used by simply changing the word 'time out' to something else. In this workshop participants will be asked to think about the difference between 'time out' and other strategies that would foster a sense of well being and belonging.


Presenter: Ana Valle Rivera is an Early Childhood Educator and has a degree in Child and Youth Care from the University of Victoria. Ana works as a contract Instructor and Facilitator. She is also a parent and children's book author.
