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.
