'If children can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn'.
Ignacio Estrada


My name is Kathryn Arbuckle and I am an experienced and qualified Primary and Special Education teacher. 

I have a valid VIT registration, I am an accredited facilitator of the Holyoak DRUMBEAT program and Rhythm2Recovery model which is an evidence-based social and emotional learning program.

I am also a trained meditation teacher.



We offer a fun, safe, supported learning environment for children to explore skills and strategies to support their social and emotional development and wellbeing which include:

* drumming games
* rhythm
* puppetry
* creative activities
* creative movement
* play based learning
* mindful awareness
* role play
* connection with nature



This program is aligned to the Resilience, Rights & Respectful Relationships Initiative and it gives children experiences and opportunities to develop strategies to understand their emotional intelligence.

It helps children to understand and manage their feelings and emotions. It builds confidence, self esteem, a sense of self, team work, self regulation, resilience, problem solving & leadership skills.

Teachers, parents and carers will also learn wellbeing strategies and practical approaches to assist them in implementing social & emotional learning with children.
