    Hello there, my team and I are currently researching strategies and ideas on what the teacher's role is when a child suddenly throws a tantrum when their parent arrives to pick them up from centre. You know the typical scenario, the child has been well behaved all today, perfectly fine, but suddenly their parent arrives and they throw a major tantrum (sometimes if their parent has warned them on what is about to happen next in their routine). 

    As teachers we feel placed in a difficult position, as we don't want to undermine the parents parenting skills by stepping in, yet we don't want to look like we aren't being supportive or working in partnership with them either, and we know that the parents might not be using the same strategy they would at home, as they feel they are being watched or judged by others.

    So just wondering what your guys thoughts and ideas and any strategies you currently use within your team, would greatly be appreciated.

    I was also wondering if anyone knows of some good professional development courses around ICT? I am from Dunedin, so not a lot of all the fantastic courses that are offered up North, are always offered down here. Thank you :)

    Kia ora koutou, my centre is currently undertaking a self review around our ICT (information, communication technology) programme, and we are looking at different ways to implement ICT within our programme. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas, strategies or effective ways of implementing ICT with infants and toddlers?  we are a mixed aged centre, and would love to hear anyone's ideas, thoughts on implementing ICT with infants and toddlers especially, as I am one of the infant and toddler teachers at our mixed aged centre.

    thank you,
