Childrens Mental Health Week


Hi everyone!

If you haven’t spotted it on our socials already, our main focus this week across our Newcastle, Heddon-on-the-Wall and Gateshead nurseries is mental health awareness. The well-being of every child that steps through our door is our highest priority every single day.

The children have been enjoying lots of different activities in relation to this, such as practicing hand and back massages on one another and participating in yoga. They’ve been enjoying lots of relaxing music and practicing their breathing techniques whilst using their physical skills at the same time. We’ve been having lots of conversations about emotions and what makes us feel happy or sad (some children said they loved making cups of tea and wearing face masks!) It was amazing to listen to them talking so passionately about their own experiences.

Being out in the fresh air is always a highlight for them too as it really allows them to build on their physical development and get their little bodies moving! Their self esteem and confidence grows also as they really get to run away with their imaginations and test out their ideas. Watering the different flowers that we have and searching for living insects seemed to be a big hit!

See you on Friday!

Lots of love,

Everyone at Leigh’s Nurseries x
