Positively Growing is delighted to be teaming with Family Footprints in rural Riverina to roll out training, coaching and sessions to support the child in the child's own world. Consultant, trainer, coach, Sara Stockman, is bringing the evidence-based social emotional framework 'Pyramid Model' and Relax Kids program, to rural early childhood services, primary school and families. In a dedicated four term delivery, Sara will aim to meet the needs and enhance the strengths of teachers, parents and support workers involved in the lives of young children. By providing a presence for the final two terms of the early years before school and the first two terms of Primary school, the overall intention is to support the emotional social development and support network enough to promote nurturing supportive relationships and high quality environments, preventing challenging behaviour and potential barriers through positive behaviour support planning. This incredibly exciting opportunity has been made possible with funding provided by the Department of Social Services through Centacare, and hopes to draw upon local community information sharing. Further to the provision of on-sight training in the highly acclaimed Pyramid Model, Sara Stockman will establish coaching for early childhood educators and early year primary teachers to substantially increase the sustainable nature of these social emotional practices that support the development of all children. In addition, Sara will provide group sessions of the program Relax Kids for the children to further develop skills to support their transition to primary school as well as general social emotional life skills.
