Zones of Regulation
The Zones of Regulation has been a supportive way for children to start the day; giving them time to reflect on how they feel and share it with staff who can then help. It enables every child to understand their own emotions and develop strategies to manage them.
We highly recommend following this at home. Families could have the zones up on the fridge, on a door or a wall space and everyone in the household sticks their name or a photograph on a zone so the family can see how one another are feeling. It is important for children to understand that emotions are normal and to discuss what strategies they can use to help themselves become more green. It is also great for children to learn how to understand themselves and identify with how their body shows their emotions
