Fly High Stories is committed to encouraging and helping children and their grown ups to play together.
We use Growth Mindset in everything we do and make, which is a way of helping young people talk about and process their emotions. There is also an emphasis in teaching young people that rather than saying, ‘I can’t do it’, they could say, ‘I can’t do it YET’. Fly High Stories is grounded in these principles, showing our young audiences how to navigate their ‘big feelings’.
