Resiliency Zones Guide for Infant and Early Care Settings
Resiliency Zones create a safe space for both students and staff. They bolster infant and early childhood mental health, promote self-regulation and mindfulness and include age-appropriate calming resources. This guide was created for Early Care centers across the state of Georgia serving children ages 0-5 years old. It offers early care educators the tools and resources to develop a Resiliency Zone in their schools, daycares, early care centers, or anywhere else they see fit.
