Leigh's Nurseries Newcastle

Mental Health at Leighs


This year’s children’s mental health theme is ‘My voice matters’ – it is so important children feel they are heard which develops their self esteem and their sense of community. Children leave their Leigh’s Nurseries journey feeling confident, independent. This is something we pride ourselves on from the work all staff do to support a child’s mental health.
From Snowdrops to Sunflowers we encourage children to express all of their feelings; through songs, stories, puppets and an extensive range of activities. Children voice their wants and interests everyday at nursery, this helps them begin to make sense of the world and develops their empathy and understanding of others’ views and opinions, which is a very important life skill.
We encourage the children to eat a very healthy diet and take part in outdoor/exercise every day, supporting their mental health further. We also encourage children to have some relaxing time every day. This helps support their mental health massively as they understand that rest is an important part of life.
Lots of love,
Leigh and the team xxx
