Zippy’s Friends

Screen Shot 2015-11-12 at 7.21.30 pmZippy’s Friends is a programme that promotes the mental health and emotional wellbeing of young children in many different countries and cultures.

The fundamental concept behind the programme is very simple – if we can teach young children how to cope with difficulties, they should be better able to handle problems and crises in adolescence and adult life.

The programme has been developed specifically for five to seven year-old children of all abilities. It teaches them how to cope with everyday difficulties, to identify and talk about their feelings and to explore ways of dealing with them. It also encourages children to help other people with their problems.
