Helicopter Stories for Emotional Well-being in Early Years with Moyra Boland
May 21 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
Children are enthralled with stories and love to engage in the emotional ups and downs of characters, using this engagement to explore their own world and their own emotions.
Helicopter Stories support children to create their own stories and bring them to life in a safe and secure environment. Helicopter Stories allows the practitioner to be at the heart of the story with the children and scaffold their understanding of who they are, how they feel and how they live in our complex world.
Participants in this training will:
• Explore emotional well-being in the early years.
• Engage with and understand the principles of Helicopter Stories.
• Devise ways in which Helicopter Stories can be used within the early years curriculum to support learning.
