    Teaching self-regulation in home and school

    Click here to register

    A webinar looking at how we can support the development of self-regulation in ourselves and our children. This is something that can be used by us in the home and by our children and their teachers in schools.

    During the webinar we will have an opportunity to think about our own triggers and responses and to consider ways of responding which recognise our body's natural reactions and how we can minimise the impact of shame when discussing and supporting self-regulation with our children.

    Summer holiday club

    The school summer holidays are upon us! However, with fewer holiday options and holiday clubs available we have recognised our families need a bit of "in-house" entertainment.  To help keep our children amused and occupied (whilst possibly helping parents grab a well deserved cuppa) we have arranged a programme of online activities that will run for five weeks on a Wednesday and Friday morning starting on 8th July.
