Molly’s Mindful Movement is an in-house activity created in conjunction with the founders of EDNS to help continue their commitment to bring awareness and improvement to mental health and emotional well-being for all in our community. Molly’s Mindful Movement creates a holding space, which has been programmed to teach early years children the essence of being themselves in a creative space, where they can be seen, heard, and valued in their peer group. Believing that all children need to have a voice in life for freedom of expression and growth. Molly has a Level 6 Diploma in professional dance and musical theatre and is currently studying NVQ Level 3 Diploma in Early Years to support her program and strengthen her own understanding about children. and their development.
Molly's Mindful movement program works in line with the early years topics and themes whilst also meeting national curriculum requirements. Children will engage with the teacher and their peers through mindfulness techniques, along with physical movement through dance, singing and acting. All these techniques are intended to support physical, social, emotional, and intellectual wellbeing.
