Playing and Learning to Socialise (PALS)

Featured image

PALS is an evidence-based social skills program to help 4-6 year olds develop a range of social behaviours for the early years of school. Using puppets, stories, games and role play, children learn important skills like:

  • greeting others
  • talking and listening
  • taking turns
  • understanding feelings
  • problem-solving in social situations.

The program is suitable for young children who may need extra support in social situations or in the lead up to preschool or kindergarten.

PALS aims to help children relate to others, teach constructive problem solving skills for social situations and promote the skills needed for the transition to school.


Learning Links runs the program weekly during school terms, with 10  x 1-hour sessions in total.
