The topic of bullying has continued to gain attention as school age administrators and teachers work to create positive environments that foster understanding and respect among children and their peers. However, as bullying incidents continue, the early childhood community is joining the conversation. Early childhood educators are now also working on ways to identify and address early bullying behaviors. The goal is to set a foundation of respect and social understanding that will support children as they grow older.
In this course, we will discuss what bullying is and how it might look, ways to prevent bullying behaviors, as well as strategies for addressing these behaviors when they do occur for both early childhood and school age educators.Not all courses are approved for early care and education in every state. Please check State and CEU Approvals page for details.
