‘Mental Health Awareness Week’ at Meadow View Day Nursery
‘Child’s Pose’ and ‘The Tree’ were just some of the moves practiced by pre-schoolers from Meadow View Day Nursery in Newport Pagnell as they took part in a yoga session as part of ‘Mental Health Awareness Week’ activities.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery in Westbury Lane, children also created self-portraits, discussed the things that made them happiest and wore blue in support of their charity partner ‘Mind’ to show support for the cause.
Meadow View Day Nursery Manager, Elkie Taylor explained;
“This week we’ve been doing lots of activities that promote wellbeing and the importance of having a healthy body and mind. Sessions such as the yoga are brilliant for introducing calming techniques, whilst also helping the children to build their strength and balance.”
Meadow View has adopted Mind, the leading mental health charity in England and Wales which offers specialised services, advice and support to those living with a mental health problem, for a year-long fundraising drive.
“We aim to make a real difference when it comes to supporting worthy causes and Mind is reaching out to about 14 million people a year in the UK who are experiencing a mental health problem,” said Elkie.
Mind provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. Money raised will fund the charity’s work including the Mind Infoline and campaigning to secure a better deal for everybody who experiences a mental health problem.
