0 - 3 Years Child Brain Development Seminar
Thursday 9 June: 9.30 - 11.30am
Gore Kids Hub, Gore
@ $20pp

The first three years of the development of the brain can be considered the most important time of a child's life for influencing their entire life span.
Participants will explore with Nathan how this works and what it means for how we interact, nurture and educate our youngest citizens.
You will explore the implications this has for early childhood/infancy and the type of environment that best facilitates the full development of the child's potential.

3 - 7 Years Child Brain Development Seminar
Thursday 9 June: 12.30 - 2.30pm - Gore Kids Hub, Gore
@ $20pp

3 - 7 years is a unique stage of development in which the child has unique needs specific to this age group.
These needs relate to the development of social emotional skills, which as well as developing resilience, play a crucial role in the subsequent development of cognitive skills such as literacy.
Together with participants Nathan will explore the research field that relates to this development and how this impacts on our practice, interactions and relationships with young children.
He hopes to infuse the session with humour and make the information easily relatable to your daily life.

Developing Brain/adolescent Brain & Decision Making
Friday 10 June 10.30am - 2.30pm – Winton Presbyterian Church Hall, Winton @ $35pp

How your brain grows and learns is obviously central to success and well-being, yet it is only in recent years that we have even begun to understand how it works!
There are ways we can help our children and adolescents to develop by simply having an understanding of the brain.
Now we have a much clearer idea of exactly what these changes are and what to expect. Understanding this can be a huge help in navigating our way through these years.
Knowing this empowers us to be much more skilled in helping and guiding the big decisions they will make.
