How We Support Children's Mental Health & Wellbeing at Milestones


Positive Living Skills

Affinity Education is proud to partner with Positive Living Skills, an educational initiative designed to support the mental health and wellbeing of young children. The Positive Living Skills program will be rolled out across all Milestones Early Learning Centres by July 2024.

Positive Living Skills is an evidence-informed program that has been endorsed by Beyond Blue. It is designed to equip young people with essential skills for mental and emotional wellbeing from a young age. It helps young children develop healthy self esteem and positive relationships, plus gives them tools and strategies that will help them in all aspects of their life, for all of their life.

Possa Bill

As part of the program, children will be introduced to the leading mascot, Possa Bill, who will help them develop a range of qualities including:

  • Kindness
  • Empathy
  • Persistence
  • Patience
  • Growth mindset
  • Personal best
  • Inclusion
  • Appreciation
  • Healthy and nutrition

Possa Bill stands tall and knows that his body language can help him feel and look confident. He benefits from regular relaxation, and knows the importance of learning and growing and giving his personal best effort (or PB)! Possa Bill knows that you need to try new things, practice and persist if you want to learn and build confidence.

Possa Bill loves to be outside in nature as often as possible, and enjoys being active and healthy. He is kind, caring, supportive, inclusive and appreciates the simple joys in life.
