Healthy Body, Happy Me

Friday and more

The emotional wellbeing of children is just as important as their physical health. Good mental wellbeing allows children and young people to develop the resilience to cope with whatever life throws at them and grow into well-rounded, healthy adults.

Friday activity guide: staff well-being

Although this activity guide focuses on staff in nurseries, there are some helpful tips which we want to share with all parents to take back to your place of work.

There are also a few tips in the download that will be helpful to do when at home for long periods of time.
