Introducing the evidence-based The Positive Early Childhood Education Program – PECE Program – which is based on research about what works to maintain a calm and positive atmosphere in your long day care centre.

PECE is easy to get, to do, and to use and it’s helpful for ALL educators, no matter what their existing levels of training and experience may be. If you know your educators sometimes feel worn down, frustrated, unsure, or simply want to know more about practical, positive ways to support children’s behaviour and development, PECE is ideal.

What we offer:

PECE offers your team a brief, online way to learn 22 specific strategies to help support children’s social skills, emotional resilience and self-regulation AND it’s been shown to reduce workplace stress and increase job satisfaction.





How does it work?

PECE is flexible to meet the needs of every long day care service, and there is also an option to offer parents the Triple P – Positive Parenting Program®.
