The rules are changing and we now have the choice to meet people outdoors over the holidays, which is great! but why not join us for some therapeutic fun over the school break before heading out. All workshops are ran by our wonderful associate team to support you and your children’s wellbeing. All events are listed here:
Just over a week before Half Term we had an idea to set up workshops for families during what is a different school holiday, when we can’t really go anywhere…
Well what a fantastic week it has been! We’ve made worry monsters, breathing buddies and positivity jars. We’ve learnt how to use reflexology & squishes for breathing techniques, meditated using imagery of butterflies, went on a soundscaping adventure to the beach to build sandcastles and focused on how we are all superheroes!! What a fantastic Half Term.
A huge thank you to our wonderful team for volunteering their time & amazing expertise and to everyone who attended and their kind donations.
We have raised £306.59 through our tickets!! All funds go towards us supporting families further and to run future workshops and events at reduced cost!
Thank you so very much everyone – just a snapshot here of some of the incredible feedback received.
So excited to launch our NEW and EXCITING Therapeutic Summer Support Workshops for children and young people aged 7-14 years. SUMMER ZEN gives your child the opportunity be part of a small, nurturing group to understand emotions, learn self-regulation and mindfulness skills, all whilst taking part in fun games and activities. Summer might seem a long way off but it’ll be here before we know it! The 3 hour, weekly supportive sessions are flexible – which means your child can attend one, all or as many sessions as they would like. Please contact me if you’d like to reserve a space. We are looking forward to welcoming you for some Summer Fun!
It’s been great to meet so many Early Years Practitioners over the last few months and wonderful that you have all left the half day’s training with new knowledge, understanding and ideas of how to further support the mental health & wellbeing of the children in your setting, their families and your colleagues. Thank you for your continued feedback.
Looking forward to working with Leicestershire Healthy Schools and Healthy Tots providing mental health training for early years practitioners and foundation stage teachers.
Mental health problems can start in early years, even if we do not see any symptoms at that time. Promoting positive mental health and wellbeing in early years education is vital. By doing this we provide a secure environment for young children to play, build relationships and learn essential skills, both academically and emotionally. We assist them to have the ability to handle the dynamics of different relationships and the resilience to face pressures and stresses growing up.
By the end of this workshop you will:
Learn about attachment and the importance of infants and young children having secure relationships and experiences
Know the risk factors for children in early years and what to look out for
Discuss the difficulties we currently have in our settings and gain helpful advice and guidance, sharing good practice with others
Understand strategies to build resilience and teach self-regulation in young children
Learn how we can support our children for school readiness
Be able to apply early intervention strategies within your own settings
Come away with plenty of resources and ideas to help shape your children’s futures
Bookings are being taken for county and city early years settings through PHBookings@leics.gov.uk
