The Encouraging Phrases Posters are examples of encouraging phrases you could use with children throughout the day. These can be displayed within the service as a reminder of positive phrases for Educators to reinforce to children.
Encouragement is a self-esteem enhancing tool that Educators should utilize more often. By using encouragement it focuses on the child rather than on the adult. It helps children to feel that we (adults) are interested in them and in what they are doing. It also shows that we have taken the time to notice how they are feeling.
