At Wellpark wellbeing is one of our top priorities. We recognise that children need to have secure attachments, be well cared for and be able to recognise and manage their emotions.
We provide wellbeing experiences which:
Give daily access to the outside to look at and investigate the immediate environment which helps the toddler to feel settled, happy and promotes a response from the toddler to show others how they feel.
Encourage the toddler to wait their turn with their friends in short
games, for example, being outside and having the patience to wait for a turn on a bike, or dig in the garden.
Encourage the toddler to walk, jump and run with support if necessary. Support the toddler to understand their emotions of feeling happy, sad, frustrated, calmly and reasonably.
Encourage toddlers to be socially comfortable with others by “reading” the messages a friend may give, for example, being unhappy, sad or upset and trying to resolve this perhaps by sharing a special toy or book or giving a hug.
Develop physical skills by building with blocks, strengthening muscles by moving in and around objects inside and outside
