Neuroscience champions

Topics of our course:

  • Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s) and their impact on mental and emotional health
  • School readiness in the 21st century and the role of neuroscience in supporting children’s wellbeing
  • Connecting neuroscience and Early Years provision
  • Self-regulation and the critical role this plays in emotional health across the life trajectory
  • Nurturing babies’ and children’s emotional wellbeing


Together we looked at How we can support children where a child had repeatedly experienced hostile responses from their primary caregivers, where they are not given the time, space and words to label and talk through their feelings, they consequently communicate their feelings of fear, anxiety, embarrassment and frustration in ways which do them more harm than good.

We understand that’s it important to be able to listen too and support children to help them label their emotions which will enable them to find their own self regulation toolkit and empower them to develop secure social communication skills that will help them throughout life.

Our emotion coaching abilities have grown since partaking in this course and we have widened our own skill set by continuing our own professional development though the use of varying media: We as a setting have regular training days and conversations where understanding and supporting children emotions are a regular topic.

We aim to support all of our children and families and staffing team through a sensitive and caring approach, we want to empower you as parents/Carer and staff  to understand your children so that you can help them when they are feeling overwhelmed by their own emotional responses. We want to give you a toolkit of knowledge that you can use to help your child. As we understand that this could result in the child failing to thrive emotionally, socially, cognitively and academically if not addressed appropriately. Not just in childhood but with serious implications throughout their life trajectory.

By recognising and responding to these uncomfortable and overwhelming emotions from the beginning, you can give the child a healthy and robust foundation from which to navigate their way through life.
