Health and Wellbeing is a vital resource for educators, emphasising the integral role of health in children’s emotional, mental, and social wellbeing. This guide encourages reflection and action on three main strands: growing and developing, physical wellbeing, and emotional wellbeing, ensuring a supportive environment for children, families, and educators alike.

Key Strands:

  • Growing and Developing: Focus on the overall development of children, addressing their physical, emotional, and cognitive growth. Understand how to support children at various stages of development, ensuring they reach their full potential.
  • Physical Wellbeing: Explore strategies to promote physical health, including nutrition, exercise, and healthy lifestyle choices. Learn how to create an environment that encourages active play and healthy habits.
  • Emotional Wellbeing: Understand the importance of emotional health and discover ways to support children’s emotional needs. Create a nurturing environment where children feel safe, valued, and understood.
  • Practical Tools: Utilise checklists and practical tools to evaluate and enhance your current practices ensuring the best possible experiences and outcomes for children, families, and educators.
