Educating the heart is just as important as educating the mind, especially during this Coronavirus pandemic.
Heart Matters is a heart-centred social and emotional learning programme which helps relieve anxiety in children while building resilience in these strange times.
Teaching children pro-social values contributes to their sense of meaning and purpose and has a strong impact on their wellbeing and mental health. Through early intervention, we can help redirect children’s thoughts, feelings and actions to improve their social and emotional experience.
Much focus is placed on specific “terminology” which will be emailed to your inbox. As parents have the greatest effect on a child’s emotional growth, your encouragement and engagement to support and carry through the programme at home are vital. Some examples of the words and concepts the children learn and will fully understand are; compromise, empathy, consequences, comfortable, uncomfortable, personal space, friendship, coping skills, trust, honesty and how words affect our heart. We support and encourage conscious parenting and will guide parents through the programme with detailed emails.
