Reducing childrens’ stress levels

We all seem to be rushing everywhere nowadays. Even when we’re sitting still we’re likely to be using our smart phones, looking at Facebook, alternating between TV screens and computer screens. It’s the same for children who often don’t have any gaps between activities because they’re always “plugged in”. On top of that children may be stressed or edgy because of the things happening at school.  For example, there may be Naplan testing or assessments or assignments due because it’s close to the end of term.

The behaviour of educators and the vibe of a service can affect children enormously. Some of the things educators can do include ensuring they focus completely on the children when they are there and not worrying about other things, doing one thing at a time, and not rushing children during transitions. Some educators even try to walk and talk more slowly because if they’re rushing around and talking quickly they find it winds the children up. How does your service help children “chill out”?
