2nd Newsletter

The RESILIENT PRESCHOOLS partnership has been meeting online since December 2020 to develop, test & deliver high quality and evidence-based resources for preschools educators, based on the principles from Positive Psychology and the PERMA model.


IHU’s participation to workshop

International Hellenic University (IHU) was invited to participate in the International Week (16-19 November 2021) organized by the Artevelde University of Applied Sciences, Bachelor of Preschool Education in Gent, Belgium. During this week IHU conducted three workshops entitled “Positive Education: Supporting children’s Positive Behaviors”, where academics and students from several EU countries had the opportunity to be informed about the “Resilient Preschools” project. In total 110 individuals (academics, teaching staff and students) participated in the workshops, where they were trained in selected activities of IO2 and they encouraged to visit the project’s website as well as project’s social media to find more information about the project.

PowerPoint Presentation



RESILIENT PRESCHOOLS Project will create material for practical applications and guidance to Preschool Teachers on how to utilise Positive Psychology when teaching young children.


Early education teachers sometimes tend to focus on academic performance and less on social-emotional skills. But children need a more holistic approach that emphasizes their own capacities and character strengths, that will enable them to adapt efficiently to a fast pacing world with constant changes and challenges.

ISPA: Conference Participation

Our team had the honour to participate in the Annual Conference of the International School Psychology Association (ISPA), the largest global school psychology association affiliated with UNESCO, presenting our work and findings from various initiatives and research projects we have been working on. The Conference was held in Cyprus between July 13th and 16th and our involvement in its workings, with multiple presentations, provided an excellent opportunity for us to showcase the work we do to contribute to policy development for education, teachers and learners’ well-being, and school improvement.
