Behaviour Series - 4: Behaviours that Challenge in OSHC

Facilitated by Emily McKenna

In our busy OSHC environments, behaviour can be a source of frustration and confusion, but as Educators, we are a in a privileged position to be able to make a real impact on our communities understanding and response to behaviour.

At times in our work with children and families we are confronted with behaviours that challenge us. Many of these behaviours are often children’s (or their families) best attempt at coping, connecting & communicating. In sessions 1-3 of the series, we unpacked behaviour in the context of children’s experiences and development in order to reframe our response and develop effective, individualised proactive strategies.

In the final session of the behaviour series, we discuss our immediate responses to behaviours that challenge us and the way we work intentionally to minimise harm. Educators will be encouraged to examine their responses & reactions to behaviour and the role these have in redirecting and deescalating complex situations.

This session will cover:

  • Responding to the challenging behaviours of children in crisis
  • De-Escalating Crisis situations
  • Creating physically and emotionally safe OSHC environments
  • Knowing and accessing the supports available

Behaviour Series:

The behaviour series supports Educators to unpack and challenge the complexities of guiding children’s behaviour in the OSHC environment. Drawing upon the cycle of planning, each session will focus on a different element of Educator’s knowledge and practice. The cycle of planning is used by Educators to assist in the development of quality programs, an important part of which is navigating responses to behaviour in a way that upholds children dignity and rights.
