Introducing wellbeing to our children

Promoting children and young people’s wellbeing is a key part of keeping them safe, helping them develop and ensuring that they have positive outcomes into adulthood.

Children’s wellbeing is a combination of their physical, mental, emotional and social needs.

Our aim is to reinforce positive energy and confidence by being kind, understanding and expressing feelings in an uncomfortable situation and to soothe anxiety and stress.

We are happy to announce we have three of our qualified nursery practitioners who will become ambassadors for our children’s wellbeing in the nursery.

Gemma Callaghan, Ellie Middleton and Nikki Lea have all been working together to implement our exciting program in all areas of the nursery.

Some of the activities that they are already practicing and will be taking place in the whole nursery are:

  • Forest bathing (Being calm amongst the trees and nature, practicing deep breathing)
  • Guided meditation, using imagery and stories
  • Reflecting on big events, such as Christmas (Writing thank-you letters to Santa)
  • Practising acts of kindness
