Child Mental Health Week

This week is Child Mental Health Week and now more than ever we need to be aware of our children’s mental health, and what good mental health looks like in our children, as well as how we can support it.

All our nurseries will be celebrating Child Mental Health Week with activities to allow children to express themselves. If children can express themselves in any way, this helps to promote good mental health.

Children need to find creative ways to express themselves and this can be done in so many ways, through dance, art, dress, music and just doing activities they love. By doing this they are able to feel good about themselves and who they are. So let your children express themselves and have good mental health.
It doesn’t have to cost alot, or any money.

Child Mental Health week website have lots of great ideas:
-Follow the link to explore some virtual sessions online – Children’s Mental Health Virtual Sessions
-A video activity to Draw your Feelings
Squiggle Game
-Have a go at some Yoga for children on Cosmic Kids Yoga

and dont forget to just get outside and play! Fresh air is amazing and just going for a walk,run or bike ride each day helps to promote both children’s and adults good mental health.

Keep an eye out on our Rosy Apple Childcare Facebook Page for more ideas and to see what we are up to at nursery!

By understanding your child and mental health, we can build their resilience which allows them to deal with changes in their life. Covid has been the biggest change to everyones lives so now is the time to act and support your child by listening, being their and being aware of their feelings.

Welcome to 2021 at Little Achievers Nurseries

Hello and Welcome to 2021!

This year has started off with Lockdown pt 3 but we continue as normal. We have practices in place to keep our environments, families and staff as safe as possible.

In early years we are constantly developing, reviewing and auditing to ensure we provide the best!
Covid will not stop us and at the end of last year we managed to develop our Bluebells room and Sunbeams room at Little Achievers Forest School Nursery.

Looking back at last year, it was definitely a challenging one for all!
We are proud to say we continued to provide childcare throughout the pandemic!

Being unable to do all the activities we love so much with our children makes things difficult. We want to keep things as normal as we can for children and continue to help them develop their learning. Personal, Social, Emotional skills are so important at this time to help children to understand their feelings.
We can support these by:
-Reading stories to children promoting discussions
-Getting outside each day for walks, bike rides etc
-Role playing with children
-Creative play where children can draw,paint,act,sing how they are feeling.


Remember – we will come out of this, and we will be stronger
