A child's success should be defined by who they are, not what they do.
We believe in a child-led curriculum and shared language.
We use a preventative, not responsive, approach.
Teaching children to be kind to themselves is the first and most important step in being kind to others.
Children can embody kindness in the way they think, the way they act and the way they express themselves.

Our Values Explained
A child's success should be defined by who they are, not what they do
We work collaboratively with schools to nurture the types of skills and abilities that cannot be measured by numbers and test scores, such as emotional-regulation, kindness and compassion, self-esteem and creativity. In order to reframe success and misguided notions of achievement, these 'life skills' must be explicitly taught and recognised as equally important.
A child-led curriculum and shared language
We follow the child's lead and encourage children to take ownership of their wellbeing. The language of our curriculum is centred upon listening and responding to the child's needs to empower the child, develop positive relationships and allow their voices to be heard.
Early intervention through a preventative strategy, not a responsive one
We believe in equipping children early on with a 'kindness toolbox' that they can take with them into adulthood. Extending kindness and compassion in the early years is more proactive than the responsive approach required when behavioural problems emerge.
Teaching children to be kind to themselves is the first and most important step in being kind to others
We aim to provide children with opportunities and spaces to explore ways to be kind to themselves, developing their own individual sense of wellbeing. Only by filling their own cup with kindness can they let it overflow to the world around them.
Children can embody kindness in the way they think, the way they act and the way they express themselves
Our programmes aim to facilitate a child's decision making process so that it is a thoughtful and compassionate exercise, motivated by warm and empathetic feelings for another person. If children can embody kindness in the way they think, kind actions will follow. These kind actions can be expressed in a multitude of ways.
