Our workshops aim to introduce essential skills for life, embracing different situations and challenges initiating diverse thinking and problem solving ready for the changing world around them.

This can be tailored to mirror the curriculum and topics including nutrition, health and wellness, if desired
Developing social and "essential" skills from an early age is critical. Research has shown that a growth mindset assists children to embrace a life-long love of learning and to overcome many obstacles in later life which otherwise would inhibit growth.and ultimately success and happiness. Our Seedlings (our youngest learners), in this course are encouraged to explore the world around them in a different way through fun and teamwork. This leads to an environment of natural curiosity, creativity and confidence setting them up well for life,even at a young age.
Every person is unique and has their own contribution to give to the world. Growth mindset is about empowering children to make a difference and fulfil their potential - whatever that may be !
