Happy children, managed emotions and conflict-free coexistence

The Good Start methodology helps teachers to use concrete practices and tools to help children develop good habits and attitudes for life, to deal with the differences, different habits and patterns of behaviour that children bring from their family environment.

Objectives of the methodology

A Good Start develops in children

Self-control

It teaches children the steps to recognize and manage negative emotions such as anger, tantrum or sadness.

Self-awareness

It teaches children to notice their reactions and moods, to talk about how it affects other children and adults.

Troubleshooting

It teaches children to talk about and understand the reasons and consequences of problem situations, providing guidance for finding solutions.

Social consciousness

It teaches children empathy and friendly behaviour, to notice others around them and to offer help.

Ability to establish relationships

It teaches children to make new contacts and friendships, prevent conflicts and loneliness.

Responsible decision making

It teaches children to consciously set and follow rules, leading them to understand why rules are important through role-playing and practice.

“If we don’t give children the skills that lead to school maturity, such as how to control themselves, interact with other children or follow rules, then they are not ready for school and will not be able to use the knowledge they have gained.”

Prof. Judy Hutchings, CEBEI, Bangor University
