This one-day training will help front-line leaders (anyone working with children aged 6 to 12 i.e. camp counselor, coaches, swim instructors) improve the quality of programs. |
It provides in-depth training in the HIGH FIVE Principles of healthy child development so front-line leaders understand what they need to do to ensure each child's social, emotional and cognitive needs are met.
Leaders learn activities and gain knowledge, tips, and resources to enhance their programs as well as their relationships with children and other staff members.
Topics also include bullying, conflict resolution, physical literacy, children's mental health and moderate to vigorous physical activity HIGH FIVE® is Canada's quality standard for children's programs.
Before HIGH FIVE, no standard existed and there was a clear need for an innovative approach to help organizations enhance program quality and provide positive experiences for children, which would remain with them for a lifetime.
HIGH FIVE® training provides participants with nationally recognized certification that will assist them in working with children's programs in the sport and recreation industry.
Several municipalities, not for profit organizations and service providers either require or recommend HIGH FIVE certification for employment.
