Communicating For Connection | Phoenix Support For Educators

Communicating for Connection

In the "Communicating for Connection" workshop, participants delve into the heart of meaningful interactions and relationships in early childhood settings. With a focus on re-framing 'attention-seeking' behaviours to 'connection-seeking', educators are guided to explore the profound impact of effective communication on a child's sense of belonging and development. 

Through engaging discussions and practical exercises, educators will be better equipped to nurture meaningful interactions, supporting a child's holistic development in a secure and responsive environment.

Participant Outcomes


  • Acquire strategies to identify and respond to 'connection-seeking' behaviours, fostering a deeper bond between educators and children
  • Enhance communication techniques to support a child's sense of belonging and becoming
  • Cultivate a reflective practice to continuously improve interaction quality and foster a nurturing environment
  • Discover how to harness one's own 'Skill to Fill' in order to replenish the 'Connection Cup,' leading to a deeper sense of fulfilment and well-being as a practitioner 
  • Develop a personalised plan to enhance self-regulation skills, enabling a harmonious co-regulation process with children who are dysregulated, fostering a supportive, understanding environment
