One of our key aims when we started our business was to make it easier for education professionals to access early years mental health resources. It is widely agreed that mental health of children is a key area to cover across early years settings, but often educators and childcare professionals find that they don’t have the right tools available to manage and discuss mental health issues. Our mental health resources are designed in consultation with widely respected independent mental health consultant Marilyn Tucknott to meet the needs of professionals and children across every stage of development. As well as personal journals for independent use, we offer a variety of tools and resources for staff to support the mental and emotional well-being of the children in their care, helping professionals at every level to meet and exceed the DfE and Ofsted guidelines for mental health.
For the Early Years and Foundation Stage sectors, we have created a number of Early Years Mental Health Resources with this in mind.
Using Mental Health Standards in Early Years Settings
Our booklet ‘Using Mental Health Standards in Early Years Settings‘ helps staff in a variety of settings to provide a mentally healthy climate for growing and learning.
Being Me: An Emotional Well-Being Journal
Our ‘Being Me: Emotional Well-Being Journal‘ allows children to explore and develop their own emotional intelligence, either independently or under staff and/or parental supervision.
Emotional Well-Being Pack
Our ‘Emotional Well-Being Pack‘ contains a variety of tools and resources to help you manage the emotional well-being of the children in your care, whatever your setting.
