Redriff have seen a difference in the children that have now been experiencing the PATHS® curriculum for the past year and a half. Children are able to discuss their feelings with a lot more confidence and understanding. Within the playground children feel empowered to try to sort out minor issues with each other, rather than always seeking adult supervision. The children are also demonstrating using more mature vocabulary around feelings within other subjects such as literacy and guided reading sessions.
