What is Kind Hands Massage Stories And Songs?

 

Wellbeing in the Early Years, uses the concept of Kind Hands.  We provide activities using massage stories and positive and nurturing touch through nursery rhymes and songs for early years children and their parents and carers.  

 

Kind Hands can also be used with children with special and complex needs.  It provides an enjoyable programme of positive touch for parents and carers.

 

The children love the Kind Hands song and I really enjoy teaching them. The songs and stories make it so much more interesting than just doing massage. It just takes it to another level and creates so many more possibilities.'  

Instructor, Worcestershire

 

Children learn best when they are healthy, safe and secure, when their individual needs are met and when they have positive relationships with the adults caring for them.   Our activities contribute to the personal, social and emotional development of children in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

Kind Hands instructors are adults from education, health and social care.  They are concerned with the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of children 2-4 years and their parents and want to make a difference.   Instructors may also be working with children with special or complex needs and their parents. 

 

Touchline Training courses are countrywide.  We provide 6 hours of online live-streaming instructor's training courses for individuals or teams of staff. They acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to teach, through play, the positive touch techniques of Kind Hands.  

The ethos of the Kind Hands programme is one of respect and choice.  The training day includes theoretical and practical aspects and the focus is on ensuring that instructors have the confidence, skills and knowledge to develop their own activities.   Instructors use the programme in children’s organisations and the home with both groups of children and their parents as well as working with individual families. 

 

Instructors have the opportunity to network and exchange ideas and experiences with others in a relaxed and calm environment.
