In this webinar, we will focus on understanding the important role that continues to be played by supportive relationships with Educators. School aged-children take many of their cues about ways to interact and relate to others from educators, including assessing the worth of their peers.  Group settings that expect caring and respect from all participants create environments that encourage participation, risk-taking and enjoyment of social engagement.
