Evidence for Learning (E4L) has released a series of resources to support early childhood educators to respond to challenging behaviours.  

These resources are based on the latest Australian and international evidence on strategies for educators in early childhood education and care settings, working with children aged 2 to 5.

The free resources include:  

  • tip sheets providing practical guidance and strategies, including: ‘Set the scene to support behaviour’, ‘Respond in the moment’, and ‘Reset the scene to revisit and reflect’ 
  • a webinar providing evidence-informed strategies to create positive relationships and stable environments for children, responses to try in the moment, and ways to reset and revisit with a child to encourage positive future interactions 
  • a systematic review of the research literature on strategies to support educators respond to challenging behaviours.
