High Quality Supportive Environments

This blogsite has been established to support your reflection and implementation of High Quality Supportive Environments in your Early Childhood service setting.  Along with Nurturing and Responsive Relationships, a quality environment will ensure children - and adults - feel secure, respected, responded to, enabled, and valued. 
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.
