The end result: a calmer, more grounded classroom that’s ‘just right’ for optimal learning.
Gosh, there’s a lot going on when you’re a primary school teacher! But setting up your classroom for success is a proactive strategy to making your day and week easier.
But setting up your home environment for success and having proactive strategies to help your child (or children) cope with their emotions will completely change how your family functions – and how you feel – day-to-day.
With a few small changes to your classroom environment, the children in your class will be able to focus and concentrate easier, be able to self-regulate, and able to control their emotions and behaviour better.
This will make your teaching day easier which means you’ll be less tired and frazzled by the end of the day.
Yes, absolutely! Changing-up your classroom with a few simple tweaks can help your WHOLE class, especially those extra challenging students.
Creating a sensory-safe classroom supports all students to be calmer, more grounded and able to focus on what you’re teaching.

Once you’ve completed all the modules, take the short quizzes in the learning portal and these will be automatically submitted for approval. You will then receive an online certificate that shows your CPD points.
We’ve allowed 20 days for you to follow along with the group, but you will have lifetime access to the course materials and videos within the course portal.
This means you can do the course at your own pace and your CPD points will still be issued once you’ve completed the modules and submitted your quiz results.
Definitely! Principals rave about the benefits this course has had on their teachers, students and school. It is excellent professional development for teachers that’s not offered online anywhere else.
