For learning to be effective and sustainable we need to consider the school and home environment and encourage the integration of new learning into all aspects of a child’s family and school life.
The unique creative focus on learning and caring for our physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing through movement allows for greater engagement, expression, progression, and transformation for both adults and children.
“It is fun and creative, providing tools for kids to care for themselves now and into their adult years!
SKILLS FOR LIFE
Learning positive self-care tools educates and empowers children and young adults to proactively manage their physical and mental health, develop emotional intelligence, and encourages their progress towards personal goals and ambitions.
We are constantly challenged by complexities and pressures associated with the fast-paced lifestyle that surrounds us. We are ‘switched on’ and accessible in a multitude of ways that places demands on our attention, time, and health. There is an increased need to learn practical skills to support our health, relationships, to manage overload, stress, and anxiety.
A lot is demanded of teachers; aside from educating they are supporting children with a complexity of emotional, behavioural, and learning difficulties that affect their concentration, development, and social engagement.
Lockdown, COVID regulations, social-distancing, and protocols around contact have added huge stress and strain to family and school life. Children have experienced new pressures and confusion that will require additional sensitivity and support from their teachers on their return to school.
Creative Wellbeing supports student wellbeing through practical and creative techniques to engage student interest and support the learning environment and morale within the classroom. This program supports teachers in designing the wellbeing components of their curriculum.
“Yoga, mindfulness and meditation can be just the antidote to the go-go, technology-saturated lives in which children are immersed. Dowdall aims to empower them with techniques that they can use in decision-making and in recognising and coping with different emotions.”
