Zones of Regulation
At The Pines, we recognise the importance of promoting positive mental health and emotional wellbeing to our students and their families. We believe in teaching the children, from a young age, to have open discussions around mental health and wellbeing, and empowering them with the tools to regulate their own emotions.
