Enhancing Practice with Hygge

CPD certified online training Included in membership

Understanding mental health and how our lifestyles positively or negatively contribute to it has never been more important. This module is all about using the ethos of Hygge to enhance your provision, opportunities for children and for your own personal wellbeing.


About this module

As the incidence of known mental health problems in young children are rising, supporting the youngest of children in our role as childminders to develop resilience, knowledge of slowing down and experiencing joy in the little things, and other skills that protect their emotional health and wellbeing is key. Where we work with older children, being able to spot the signs of poor emotional wellbeing and what might be triggering it, creating a safe space and providing support for both the child and their family and then working with them in an attempt to negate the triggers is so important.

Throughout this module you will have the opportunity to reflect on your current practice and how you can move it forward. It is suitable for anyone interested in developing their work with children, keeping children in the centre of all that happens in the setting, for anyone who needs to rebalance their work and home life as well as streamlining the working day, making it more effective for the children whilst putting wellbeing and engagement at the forefront.

You can work through this online module at your own pace. It is built of text to read through or to listen to, with videos to watch, and activities to work through as well as plenty of pictures to give you ideas of how you might incorporate the ideas into your own setting.
