We offer an innovative and forward-thinking program for childcare and education settings, introducing mindfulness to the Early Years and helping make BIG feelings child size!
Despite many previous interventions, latest statistics have revealed that mental health is still on the rise with 1 in 8 children in the UK suffering a mental health condition.
Statistics from the Department for Education revealed that almost 1 in 4 children in England who start school are not ‘school ready.’ One of the key gaps highlighted was social and emotional development, including behavioural issues. Save the Children have stressed how the impacts on children who are not school ready can affect their success throughout education, in future health and employment in adulthood.
To change the future, we must start with our future generation!
Our Program lays a strong foundation for positive mental health and wellbeing, by equipping children with a set of skills for managing a range of everyday emotions, encouraging positive behaviour choices. We support you to incorporate the program into your settings and make it part of your everyday practice. With regular and consistent use, it can soon become an instinctive and internal process building emotional intelligence, self-regulation and improving impulse control.
Your setting will be equipped with a ‘go to’ structure for all, improving consistency so that both adults and children know what is expected of them, building individual confidence and self-esteem, whist improving wellbeing for all.
