Eileen Johnson, Director, 2001 – present

Eileen Johnson is the Director of The Little Missionary’s Day Nursery. She has developed the A.R.T. method of emotional education. This means:

  • ACCEPT – adults accept the child’s feelings, and their own responses
  • REFLECT – adults reflect feelings rather than trying to ‘fix’ them
  • TEACH – adults teach skills for managing and communicating feelings

She is the author of:

The Children’s Bill of Emotional Rights
