We are proud to announce that Kids Inspired has just confirmed they will be implementing ‘The Best of Friends’™ program during 2017 at their wellbeing centre in Kirrawee. Clients from Kirrawee and surrounding areas will now be able to benefit from this engaging and effective Social and Emotional Program.

“At Kids Inspired we are passionate about providing children with opportunities to develop skills that will enable them to face difficult situations throughout life, managing their emotions in healthy and helpful ways, and drawing on interpersonal effectiveness skills to engage positively with those around them. The concept of Kids Inspired is built on providing skills development through fun and engaging group work programs. Imparting knowledge and tools, whilst in a supported peer/social setting.” ‘The Best of Friends’™ program ticks all the boxes.

Their enrollment continues to set a landmark moment for us at Quirky Kid as we continue to work incredibly hard to produce innovative and effective programs and resources that are tried, tested and loved in classrooms, clinics and lounge rooms around the globe.

Dates for 2017 workshops are available here.

Interested in offering ‘The Best of Friends™’ program at your school?

Currently, the program is available to a limited number of schools and organisations. The BoF program has a comprehensive implementation, evaluation and monitoring plan and we are keen to identify partners committed to SEL implementation and evaluation.

Schools can choose from a target (small group) or universal (classroom) format. We will provide all the implementation assistance required, including training, supervision and support for key staff members.
