Understanding Middle Childhood Development Workshop

Middle Childhood Development 7-12 years is often a stage of development less focussed on in the literature compared to Early Childhood or Adolescent development. However for OOSH services, this is a very critical stage of development and often impacts on how children engage and relate socially.

This special session will outline:

  • the unique characteristics of Middle Development
  • the variables that come into play in relation to behaviour and interactions between children at this age
  • practical Tier 1 strategies to increase participation, including how to set up the environment to support behaviour and emotional regulation in ALL children
  • how to support children with developmental differences
  • how to increase a sense of belonging – particularly older children using the service
  • the ways targeted Educator engagement can be used to support positive interactions and reduce risk
