Stimulating the development of Emotional Education in children
2-3-4 aphril 2012
The objective of this program is to bring child education students (whether studying or in training) closer to the field of emotions as an educational resource, and be able to put this knowledge to practice during the meeting with boys and girls in our Centre. It is also our intention to promote the meeting between students from different colleges or universities to exchange experiences and share their vocation for teaching.
For this purpose, we wish to make the most of the fact that we already have an innovating project underway (our "Petits Grangers" (Baby Farmers) project, a school of nature for children from 1 to 3 years of age) to enable students to observe the work of our educators directly on site.
We introduce many emotional workshops because we firmly believe that we, as educators, should personally acquire experience in the field of emotions as an educational resource in order to work with children. It is necessary nowadays to improve our capacity for emotional awareness and selfregulation, to learn how to work as part of a team or feel empathy towards others. We also have to develop our ability to observe, interpret and correctly manage not only our students' emotions but also those of their parents, if we wish to achieve excellence in our work.
The task of educating requires many abilities, and emotional abilities are essential in order to achieve the success that we dream.
In order to promote creativity, the ability to work as a team and the capacity to plan and organize, we have introduced a practical workshop in which small groups of pupils will present and carry out an emotional workshop/activity with our pupils in the "Petits Grangers" (Baby Farmers) nursery.
