    Communication, listening, and engaging with the children. Use the serve and return, offer lots of play time, play with them, ask questions, and get the kids to do tasks together.

    Interaction with the children is important, Listening, talking, playing, everything where you are engaged with the child and they can build that trust with you.

    I would advise to spend time listening and interacting with the child. There would also be times of special interactions where you are focused just on the child. I know that some of the kids who feel stressed in my program just want to have hugs.

    Build in time to check in with each child every day to give them 1:1 connection. If a child is struggling socially maybe pair them up with a peer they feel secure with.

    To build connection with children, you need to get on their level. Play, read, instruct from where they’re at in the present moment. Allow them to lead play and activities as well so that they know that they can depend on you to listen, acknowledge and follow through on what they need when the time comes.

    I would tell then to deeply observe the children and get to know them. Do things that these children love. Show them that you care and engage in activities with them such as special time

    You need to spend time communicating positively to children, getting to know their likes and dislikes as well as participating in the serve and return.

    Advice I would give is to make sure that you are listening, playing and being active with your kids. Make sure you support kids who seem a little less willing to join in on group activities. Promote and support different cultures and activities.

    I would say it’s all about one on one times and taking the time to truly get to know your kids. You can find out their likes,dislikes, and triggers for example. This information will better help you understand the child and give you a better idea on how to handle certain situations with each child individually on their level.

    spend so much time playing with, speaking to, and listening to the kids. but don’t be afraid to be assertive. they may get upset, and that’s okay, but they will know boundaries and what is okay or not okay if you keep being assertive with them.

    Give them each individual attention, focus on making each child a line leader making them feel special, give each child a chance to be the page turner when you have circle time and read books,

    watch and listen for any interest they have or anything that upsets them or frustrates them. get to know who they are as an individual on the sidelines before running up to them. not saying you shouldn’t talk to them at all but i think it is good to see how they interact with others and what they favor more.

    I think having a lot of interactions with each child is important. It is good to make them feel special and to also be engaged in what they are doing/tell you.
