Our emotional health and wellbeing support for children is also delivered through our designated play clubs. These include 5 after school clubs and a specialist holiday club within our main CYCA site.
Although the main focus of the clubs are to provide a service where children can access a variety of fun, stimulating activities, in a warm, safe environment; the promotion of children’s development, emotional and physical wellbeing is always central to the work.
Our evidence shows that as well as providing important physical benefits for children, by engaging with our play activities, they are also experiencing a wealth positive emotions, which increases their self-esteem and resiliency, and reduces their anxiety and stress.
