Soulful Art: the courage to listen to children

Find out how a slow, respectful approach to the arts can help young children thrive post-pandemic, fostering emotional resilience and communication for better mental wellbeing. Presented by Susan Franco


For many of us, the desire to work within the early childhood sector is born from a deep desire to support young children. COVID has impacted our world and our children’s world. As we navigate this post-pandemic landscape how do we support young children to thrive, rather than merely survive?

Through our 'Soulful Art',' we have deliberately and intentionally empowered our pre-schoolers, to engage their hands, hearts, and minds and to support them to make meaning of their world.  To further develop emotional resilience and support children to communicate their feelings as a solid foundation for mental wellbeing.

This webinar will share with you how a slow and respectful approach to the arts can help to honour and validate children’s feelings and thinking.
