Resilience is the ability to deal with challenges and bounce back and thrive. Just like adults, children have to learn to cope with situations and failures. Being in a new setting, learning to deal with other children, meeting new adults/teachers and learning new things at school all provide opportunities for your children to increase their resilience. Being resilient will help children be more successful in school, in building relationships with others, makes them more confident to try new things, and makes them better learners. Resilient children try new things and under-stand that they can overcome setbacks and be successful. It helps them cope with failures and find new ways to be successful the next time and studies show that children can think more flexibly and realistically, be less anxious and more creative.
StepUp NurseryTM helps build resilience in children by offering them a safe, judgement-free environment to try new things including lessons in the classrooms like identifying letters, numbers and colors; learning Arabic; being in front of their peers speaking; learning about music and playing musical instruments. Even playing on the playground or the Indoor Soft Gym allows them to try new things like climbing up a structure that they haven’t seen before. Intro to Cooking ex-poses them to cooking, following directions, tasting new things and helps them gain confidence in their abilities as they create something meaningful from scratch. All of the activities at StepUp NurseryTM are intended to help children try, learn and grow in their abilities.
