Sunshine Circle – Theraplay® Taster

Description: Sunshine Circles are play-based groups that are suitable for children of all ages and abilities.

The sessions will focus on fun and mutual acceptance through playing games that emphasise cooperation and trust within a warm and nurturing environment to allow the children to experience emotional confidence, explore and interact.
Sunshine Circles are adapted from a play-based therapy called Theraplay®, which is a child and family therapy for building and enhancing attachment, self-esteem, trust in others and joyful engagement.

The Sunshine Circle group format is used in nurseries, schools, children’s centres and other settings. The focus of the groups is on the development of healthy relationships and self esteem through adult-directed, structured games that incorporate playful, cooperative, and nurturing activities to enhance the emotional well-being of children and their caregivers.

Sunshine Circle learning happens on a non-verbal level; instead of talking about positive social behaviour, the group have positive social interaction with the goal of creating a warm, nurturing, engaging atmosphere that allows
children to explore their world and promotes happy relationships between children and adults and friendship among peers.
