Feelings and Friends
Feelings and friends is a pre school class for children aged 2-5 years.
Recent research has discovered that parents who encourage children to label and explain emotions have toddlers who helped and shared with other children more often. Studies have also found that the better children understand emotions, the more they are liked by peers.
Feelings and Friends has been designed as an alternative to modern behaviour strategies with their focus on rewards and punishments. We use interactive games, songs and puppets to support the development of sharing, making friends and being kind to others. Using our popular 'Teddy Time' we provide children with the language to express their emotions and develop strategies to help them cope with difficult feelings.
All sessions are run by our Early Years Specialist Speech and Language Therapist and our Children's Therapy Assistant
