The Third Teacher: Creating Responsive Environments to Support Children’s Behaviours

February 21, 2024 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


The Third Teacher: Creating Responsive Environments to Support Children’s Behaviours

Children experience big feelings and have big actions to communicate these feelings with the people around them. It’s important that early childhood educators create an environment that is safe, physically, mentally, and emotionally, for children to learn about these emotions and discover ways to express these emotions.  This is where the third teacher – our early learning environments- can help! By knowing what works for each child, we can create spaces and routines that help them feel safe to explore and express these emotions without negative outcomes. We all understand that this is a learning process for children, so why don’t we engage in proactive strategies that support them on their learning journey. In this workshop, we will look at the four key components to creating responsive environments; routines, transitions, play spaces and engagement. Since one strategy doesn’t work for each child, every time, we will brainstorm a variety of strategies and approaches you can add to your behavioural support toolkit! Let’s look to our environments for help!


  • Identify the important role environments have on children’s behaviors
  • Identify strategies to support four key components of responsive environments:
    • Routines
    • Transitions
    • Play Spaces
    • Engagement
  • Reflect on current practices and create action steps to move forward with creating responsive environments.
