‘My Cups are full and I’m ready for school’ is a one hour online webinar designed for Early Childhood Educators that links the theoretical understanding of the Phoenix Cups framework to real life practice examples of School Readiness. In the webinar, Angie Day unpacks why specific practices related to School Readiness are considered ‘Cup filling’ (positively meeting the psychological needs of children and their development) or ‘Cup emptying’ (diminishing a child’s sense of self and intertwined with practices deemed inappropriate by contemporary research).
The course explores individual needs strengths profiles (Glasser, 1998) of children and unpacks how different practices relating to School Readiness will help each child thrive through the transition to a school setting. The ultimate objective of this course is for educators to better understand the children they work with and align their practices and approaches to school readiness to ensure each child is leaving for school feeling fulfilled, excited, and prepared for the transition.
The course is live and will also offer a recorded play back that allows opportunities for teams to pause, reflect, document and discuss the ideas that are presented. It will be ideally delivered during a team meeting for the educators in the Kindergarten room and used as provocation to reflect on current practices and be unafraid to try a new approach.
