Creative Well Being

We worked with a group of 5-year-olds and their parents/carers to improve emotional health and well-being by building
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.

This work was commissioned by 0-19 Torbay and NHS Torbay and South Devon Foundation Trust.

Families co-produced a podcast by the end of programme to feature: 

  • Stories
  • Reflections on their learning + experience of the programme
  • Real life success stories
  • Top tips for bedtime routines 
  • Relaxing ASMR recordings
  • Any other content participants want to include

We will teach parents/carers behaviour management techniques through observing our staff modelling.


  • Expand ability for young people to interact with the world around them through using creativity
  • Provide a new set of skills for self-expression and communication
  • Give opportunity for marginalised voices to be heard, loud and clear, in the role of expert 

To support these key areas of development through creativity:

  • Communication skills e.g. expressing emotions
  • Problem-solving skills 
  • Social + emotional skills
  • Fine motor skills
  • Building self-efficacy
  • Improve behaviours + poor sleep patterns
