Tucker turtle helps children learn steps to control feelings and calm down. We have introduced the turtle technique to aid the children in developing their self-regulation. It’s important to teach this skill to children BEFORE they need it and then practice it. The child needs to be cued to remember to use it if they show signs of agitation. Families can use this effective technique easily at home.
We understand every child is unique, capable and resourceful. Through secure, respectful and reciprocal relationships with educators and the stimulating and secure preschool environment we believe each child will be enabled to develop a strong sense of identity, wellbeing and become confident and involved in learning.
