These sessions support young children to have play-based experiences that support them on their journey, raising confidence and self-esteem, supporting communication, building relationships with other children and helping them to understand and manage their own emotions. Turn taking and listening skills will be nurtured using games, playing together and through reflections at the end of each session.
The programme will be unique to each group, with a flexible approach that is facilitated to support the needs and interests of the children.
Patterns of play will be identified early on in the programme and experiences offered to support and develop children’s learning through their preferred learning styles.
