ABOUT IT TAKES A VILLAGE

A surge in the number of young children suffering from levels of anxiety has prompted the creation of a community wide positive well-being initiative led by St. Patrick's National School in Greystones, Co. Wicklow.

‘It Takes A Village’ is a positive well-being initiative borne out of concerns expressed by teachers in primary schools located in the Greystones and Delgany areas of County Wicklow. The initiative seeks to build a community of services to assist children, families and teachers in need of help with issues around anxiety in young children in the eight primary schools in the catchment area.
 

EVENTS

It Takes a Village will host monthly workshops and community events
through-out the year.
