This course will support and guide preschool staff in creating a place in the classroom where children can retreat to, in order to practice self-regulation and gain composure as they become overwhelmed. The safe place is available to all children anytime of the day as needed. The course will include instruction on setting up the safe place and how to utilize self-regulation tools and materials that will help children de-escalate, identify, and address their feelings. We will discuss creating expectations for the safe place that support student behavior while strengthening a classroom system that incorporates and promotes social emotional learning (SEL). This course will identify and utilize social emotional tools from various curriculum’s to demonstrate how creating a safe place in the classroom helps support social emotional well-being and promotes resiliency in children.
