Leigh's Nurseries Newcastle

Wellbeing at Leigh’s


Here at Leigh’s Nurseries children’s mental health is our top priority as when impacted positively on a consistent basis it allows children to form strong positive relationships with others allowing them to feel safe and secure helping them to explore, develop and learn. We create a home from home environment for the children to learn and play. We have different areas around nursery to help and support children with their mental health and encourage them to talk about how they are feeling.
In the mornings the children come into nursery and we have interactive morning circle time. We ask each child how they are feeling that day. During the afternoon we have a goodbye circle where we ask the children what they have done that day and what they enjoyed. This is a lovely way to allow the children to talk and express how they are feeling. We have a lot of different story books around nursery that allows younger children and babies who are still developing communication to express their emotions as well.
At Leigh’s the children always have access to the outdoor environment. Outdoor play is very important for children’s mental health as it increases concentration and cognitive skills and also allows the children to explore and have an understanding of the world around them. Children are always able to have some down time if they need it. We have lots of cosy areas around our nursery accessible for the children at all times. We have calm relaxing music, relaxing light and stories so they can come and recharge their batteries, have a chat with their peers ready to explore some more.
Lots of love,
Everyone at Leighs xxx
