Dot 2 Dot – the resilience pathway


At Dot 2 Dot we foster children’s wellbeing through fun, interactive activities that develop social and emotional learning, as well as decision-making and relationship skills. We focus on children’s strengths and positive qualities, rather than repairing problems after they occur. We are passionate about helping children see the ‘good’ in themselves, improving their resilience and confidence to make sure they can recover quickly from difficult situations and deal with all of life’s challenges, regardless of how big or small.

Our Dot 2 Dot programs have been designed for boys and girls aged 7-13. We have a range of 1-day and 2- day programs to suit your needs. All programs cover confidence, resilience and social skills but will be tailored to the specific nature of the groups. We also cover topics including, health and wellbeing, friendships and creative mindfulness.
