There's so many areas to navigate and its not always a smooth path!

Our children's education is more than learning and gaining knowledge in subjects such as maths, history, english etc. It's about developing the whole child. Recognising each child as an individual with all their idiosyncrasies, and nurturing that individual to maximise their potential, whatever that may be.
When I ask parents what they want for their children the following answers are typically given:
Happiness, confidence, health, love, kindness, self-worth, meaning, an optimistic outlook, ability to get along with people and understand emotions.

In short wellbeing or emotional fitness, but do we invest enough in helping them develop this wellbeing?
We all recognise the importance of physical fitness, indeed there are a multitude of training programmes and sports initiatives to develop physical fitness. So what about the training for the development of emotional fitness?

How do children develop the skills needed to develop optimism, resilience, self-efficacy, self-regulation, confidence, empathy, self-determination and positive relationships? We know that emotional intelligence is at least as important as IQ. People with higher social and emotional skills have been proven to function better in the world regardless of their academic intelligence. How do children learn about mindsets, and develop strategies to manage their emotions allowing them to flourish?
Nurture My Potential offers development workshops in all these areas. When teachers use the Mindful Journey to the Growth Mindset Programme with children, where they learn about their incredible brain, understand what growth mindset really means, gain an undersatnding of how they can develop themselves and their abilities through effort and hard work, understand their emotions and importantly learn tools and strategies to manage them, they have an opportunity to flourish.
But we don't stop there, emotional wellbeing is essential for all of us.Using the analogy of adult passengers putting the oxygen mask on themselves on an aircraft before helping the children, we know that self care is essential in order to be able to give children what they need. With this in mind, Nurture My Potential also offers mindset and wellbeing workshops for the key stakeholders in the child's life - parents/carers and teachers.

An approach to develop adults and children to be the very best version's of themselves.

“We found the transition workshops invaluable for our Year 6 children. They are at a very difficult age where they are especially vulnerable and they have a lot of pressures to deal with, between the SATs and transitioning to secondary school. Children really took on board what Claire taught them…
