The SMILE project

What is SMILE?

The SMILE project was commissioned to bring together the many initiatives and strategies in Wandsworth relating to the promotion of Positive Emotional Health and Well-Being (PEHWB) for children aged 0-12.

The aims of SMILE are:

Celebrate good practice in Wandsworth early years and primary settings.

  • Raise awareness of Wandsworth services that support PEHWB.
  • Promote the links between public health and education in early years and primary setting in Wandsworth.
  • Support a whole service and organisation approach to PEHWB.


SMILE means Sharing, Movement, Imagination, Learning and Empathy

These are five key themes to achieving and maintaining positive emotional health and well-being.
