About this event

The Anna Freud Centre is announcing a series of free webinars aimed at all early years practitioners.

The first webinar will be looking at: Managing challenging behaviour in early years settings 

This webinar will be taking a look at how to understand and manage emotions such as anger, aggression and frustration in young children. This is in response to our consultation work with early years practitioners, who rated this as a key issue they would like support with.

 Who is this webinar for?

  • Nursery managers and owners, childminders, children centre managers
  • Nursery workers and other childcare practitioners

The event will be open to anyone in the early years sector interested in attending. We particularly wish to further increase membership across our target audience – nursery and childcare workers. We recognise that attending online seminars may not be feasible/desirable for some practitioners, and are therefore will particularly target managers, with the aim of encouraging the cascading of information to practitioners.




Other webinars in the series will include:

  • Supporting bereaved children in early years settings
  • Caring for children in early years settings who have experienced trauma
