Nau Mai, Haere Mai, Welcome

Positive behaviour can be learnt!

Every child and young person needs at least one competent and caring adult and to experience success. You and your school or centre can be the difference.

Discover ways of working, ways of thinking, tools, examples and readings to create a climate where positive behaviour and learning flourish.

You will find this site useful whether you work in early childhood, or in primary, intermediate or secondary school. Just adjust the strategies suggested to the age of the children or young people in your centre or class.

This site is not a comprehensive guide to child behaviour. It provides you with a basic foundation of knowledge around child behaviour and supports teacher enquiry.

This website is part of Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L). PB4L helps schools, teachers and parents across New Zealand to promote positive behaviour. PB4L is supported by eight education sector organisations and led by the Ministry of Education.
