self-efficacy, better understanding and expression of emotions and to improve behaviours, including
improvements to poor sleep.
This project is our first working with early years and parents/carers. Using well-loved bedtime story books as a focus for creative activities, over 12 weeks we will: create content working in a range of inspiring locations; learn healthy sleep habits; and develop positive family relationships.
