“If we drip feed the skills children need to learn in early years, by the time they reach secondary school and beyond they will have a much better understanding of how to look after their mental health and strategies to guide them through anxiety and challenges that may seem over whelming. Everything needs to begin in primary [school].”Julia Johnston
Julia’s passion resonates with LBL’s Emotions Theme, the focus of which is emotional intelligence, emotional development and mental health.
Through the nine Life-Based Learning themes children learn all aspects central to their life and learning. Subject learning is secondary to the nine themes which are paramount as the intention and aim of the learning.
We blog regularly on the topic of Mental Health.
