If your nursery aims to provide a complete service for your parents and support for all your children, a play therapy service is essential – not just an option.
It’s estimated that 20% of all UK children suffer from some type of social, emotional, behaviour or other mental health problem. The earlier they get help the better. But it must be safe and effective – not by unqualified, unregistered, unsupervised persons. Play therapy has a success record of between 77% and 84% when therapy is delivered to Play Therapy UK standards.
If you are not already using a therapist on the Register of Play and Creative Arts Therapists there’s two main ways:
- Employ or contract someone on: www.playtherapyregister.org.uk
- Provide training for a member of your staff: http://www.playtherapy.org.uk/Training
You can find out a lot more about the skills required and the experiential methods of training that we use by attending a one day introduction to play therapy course (13 venues in the UK): http://www.playtherapy.org.uk/Training/TrainCrseAPACIntrod1day
