About the Fun Friends program

We are looking to resume FRIENDS Groups in Term 4 this year.

We currently have a number of families who were unable to attend cancelled Term 2 and Term 3 groups. These families will be offered places first. Remaining places will be posted in August for Term 4 groups. 

Term 1 2021 groups will open for enrolment in September. 

I want to thank all our families for their flexibility over the past few months. I look forward to welcoming new and returning FRIENDS to Pathways in Term 4. 

Wishing you all well,

Michelle Hall

The Fun FRIENDS Program helps guide the social and emotional development of children aged 4 to 7 by using fun, play-based group activities. Fun Friends teaches skills that will nurture a child’s development during these crucial early years, giving them the ability to excel and smoothly transition into school life.

How does this program help?

Fun Friends helps children gain confidence and self-esteem while learning essential skills like how to communicate with adults and how to cope with stress or fear. Parent’s notice a vast difference in children’s social skills whilst overall appearing happier and enthusiastic. Children are equipped with the skills to make early transitions a breeze.

To help participants remember the FRIENDS concepts, we use the following FRIENDS acronym:

F-Feelings (talk about your feelings and care about other people’s feelings)

R-Relax (do “milkshake” breathing, have some quiet time)

I-I can try (we can all try our best)

E-Encourage  (step plans to being brave)

N-Nurture (quality time together doing fun activities)

D-Don’t forget to be brave! (practice skills everyday with friends and family)

S-Stay happy
