The Lighthouse Room

‘The Lighthouse’ is the Nurture room in Seaview.   It is a place where children are given the freedom to express themselves within a nurturing environment. Mrs. McCreedy (Nurture Teacher) and Miss McConnell (Nurture Assistant) offer a range of opportunities for the children to develop their social and emotional skills.  The activities offered, which are centered around the 6 Principles of Nurture, are designed to enable the children to do better at school and with peers, develop their resilience and their capacity to deal with the trials and tribulations of life, for life. The Six Principles of Nurture are;

1.       Children's learning is understood developmentally

2.       The classroom offers a safe base

3.       The importance of nurture for the development of wellbeing

4.       Language is a vital means of communication

5.       All behaviour is communication

6.       The importance of transition in children's lives
