Here’s a reminder of our key focusses and what you will get on the free trial:

All about Teddy:

The focus is on Teddy, who is going to start school in September. He starts the week with a story to tell and a problem he needs help to solve. Children learn through the stories Teddy tells. Using a character as the focus gives children the opportunity to engage with their own journey at their own pace. This is great for those who are anxious about starting school as they will be able to see how Teddy prepares without feeling the pressure on themselves.

Safe challenge:

Every session is carefully planned to teach and explore skills needed to find success at school. Many of these are social skills which, in order to for children learn well, require experience and the opportunity to test out different behaviours, reactions and outcomes. Children and parents are given ideas to stimulate discussion and play at home. They will explore what happens in everyday situations, have the chance to discuss the challenge and use this as a valuable experience to draw upon at a later date.

Parent/Carers are fully involved:

The sessions are planned to support parents to get ready for school as much as children. Each session includes an ‘Adult Guide’ explaining the focus of the session, what your child can learn and what the expectation will be at school.

We want to create a community for parents going through this journey together and using our online Facebook Group we will offer information and top tips via pre-recorded and live sessions. We are also availble to support you directly and can be contacted via email or social media messaging. If you have a concern about your child’s starting school journey we are here to help.

How does it work?

The Programme is 6 weeks long run via a Private Facebook group. Each week there is a new theme focussed on skills to practise before starting school.

Each week on the Facebook Group you will recieve:

* A video session featuring Teddy and Em. Em will explain a problem that Teddy needs help solving and set some challenges for the week (you can watch as many times as you want throughout the week)

* A specially recorded song (available in video and audio form) to listen to and sing during the week

* Downloadable content for information and activities to try out (this is also available as a full download at the start if you like to be organised!)

Then you will also be invited to:

* A live session via Zoom on a Friday at 10.30am. This is a short session involving a game, song and a chance for the children to share their ideas about how to solve Teddy’s problem.

You will recieve all of the above for one week on the free trial.

Free Trail ends Friday 22nd May – The full programme booking will launch soon, information will be available within the free trial.
