Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies (PAThS)

Staff within the Jelly Bean room use the strategies to support children to express their emotions.

We are looking to introduce Paths to the children in the Jelly tots room in the near future.      

 The PAThS curriculum has been designed for nurseries and schools. PAThS develop essential skills in emotional literacy, behavioural self-control and interpersonal problem-solving skills in children.

Emotional literacy is a way of recognising, understanding and choosing how we think, feel and act. It shapes our interactions with others and our understanding of ourselves. It defines how and what we learn, it allows us to set priorities and determines most of our daily actions.

Staff understand that all feelings are ok but not all behaviours are. This belief is embedded through all staff and in all playrooms.
