One of the biggest challenges faced by those working in early childhood education and care services is managing the behaviour and emotions of young children. 

ACA Qld has partnered with trusted Child Psychiatrist Dr Kaylene Henderson to deliver the acclaimed online professional development course series, Raising Good Kids: Managing Behaviour and Emotions in Early Childhood Care and Education Settings.

This research-based 3 course series has strong links to the NQS and EYLF and has also recently been mapped to the Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care (CHC30113) and Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care (CHC50113). 


It is a practical, flexibly delivered course series, made up of 10 self paced modules which cover the following topics:

  • Understanding children's temperaments
  • Creating a culture of teamwork among children / reducing rivalry
  • Teaching young children how to share
  • Attachment: The importance of secure relationships
  • Centre-based activities to promote positive social behaviours
  • Teaching infants and young children to identify and express their feelings
  • Managing children’s emotions and meltdowns
  • How to promote empathy, kindness and generosity among children
  • LOTS of helpful behavioural strategies 
  • Understanding children’s misbehaviour
  • A research based approach to discipline within ECCE centres

When you register for this highly regarded course series, your staff will gain access to the video-based content that they can watch at any time on their smart phones, iPads or computers. You will also gain access to the printable handouts, interactive quizzes, recommended reading suggestions and certificates of completion.
