Managing Behaviour‏ in 4-11 Year olds


Our Managing Behaviour in 4-11 year olds course is a Continuing Professional Development course focusing on the expected behaviour of children aged 4-11, and the strategies that can be used to manage behaviour in this age group. Using a hands-on approach, including role plays, this course will deepen your understanding of children’s behaviour and equip you to offer parents powerful and appropriate techniques to deal with challenging behaviour.


This course is aimed at anyone working with children aged 4-11, including nannies, childminders and au pairs, and is particularly interesting for anyone wanting to move into consultancy work. It may also be of interest to parents and grandparents wanting to explore different aspects of behaviour management.


This course is not assessed.


A certificate of attendance is provided at the end of the day for your portfolio.

Course Content

The course covers expected behaviour, including challenging behaviour issues, in children aged 4-11. It examines common pitfalls in talking to children and how to avoid them and positive skills for improving behaviour, motivation and self-esteem. It will help you teach children to express their feelings in words rather than in their actions and deal with anger, frustration and tantrums. Throughout the course there is a focus on working in partnership with parents.

Here are what our students have said about their experiences on our courses

  • "After taking the Common Core Skills course I also decided to take a maternity course after my very positive experience with HATA. All the trainers were so professional and had lots of experience in their fields. It really gave me a newfound confidence in my skills, especially after my boss went on to have a second baby."
