The coach establishes a community which provides an excellent, supportive learning environment
Coaches ensure that learning takes place in an environment where children are safe, happy and comfortable and where they get support for their efforts from the people who make up the community – the coach, other children and their families.
Children learn best in the kind of environment the community provides.
We build a sense of acceptance and belonging, which draws the whole group together to form a nurturing learning community.
The coach is key to establishing a supportive community.
Children themselves are key members of the community.
