Emotional Wellbeing At Leighs!


Welcome back and Happy Friday!

The emotional wellbeing of children is just as important as their physical health as it really allows them to develop the resilience needed to cope with whatever life throws at them, resulting in them growing into well-rounded adults! Mental health is about maintaining personal and social functioning at a healthy level and it’s what we strive to achieve within every child here at Leighs. Our outstanding practitioners work hard to create strong relationships with all children in each of our three settings, whilst playing fun and engaging activities that actively promote positive well being on a daily basis.

The feeling of security that we build upon helps to really strengthen the children’s emotional development. We’re really proud of the fact that our staff turnover is incredibly low and the ratio of staff to child is high meaning they all get the attention and care they deserve every minute of the day. Each child is treated as a unique individual when with us and every little success or milestone they reach is recognised and celebrated! We aim to support and offer as many opportunities as possible in a bid to help the children understand their own feelings as well as the feelings of others.

The free-flow environments present in all three settings provide lots of space where the children can relax, rest and experience moments of stillness which all helps to build and support a healthy mind set. We want them to feel like they can express themselves on a daily basis, whether it be through dancing, singing, experimenting with sensory materials or using mark making tools (the list is endless!)

I hope you all have an amazing weekend!

Lots of love,

Leigh x
