How are you feeling today?

We’re not always happy and it’s ok to feel how we feel and it’s important to explore our emotions to try and unpick what is making us nervous, angry, sad, anxious, cross…One little one was struggling a bit as they were feeling quite emotional and their key person’s sensitive observations of them throughout their nursery day led to them creating an area where they could explore differing emotions and build an even stronger bond together. They wanted to help this little one unpick why they were feeling this way, as this is absolutely crucial if learning any development is to be able to occur…Lots of lovely emotional awareness is now being explored through visual mediums (the emotion stones) and stories that the children can easily and meaningfully relate to.Helping our children realise it’s ok not to be ok sometimes is such an important role for the key person and then their sensitive interactions/communication and support helps them to feel happier and soon find themselves in a much better place whereby they can then get the most out of their nursery day…
