In this interview, we discuss how children’s mental health has been changing and how we should respond to that as Early Years practitioners, educators and teachers. As usual, Sonia has a lot of great ideas and advice, based on her own experience and work. This includes new strategies that she has learned during lockdown, such as the ways that being outdoors changes children in unexpected ways and that being rubbish at football is actually a good thing!
