Abstract

Leaders of children’s groups have to do several things simultaneously while a group is running and this can be demanding. While facilitating the programme, they have to observe, notice and respond to issues concerning the group as a whole, and also attend to the individual needs of group members. Before a group programme begins, leaders need to plan and prepare to meet the practical requirements of the programme. In preparing for and delivering a group programme leaders need to carefully consider the following:
  1. 1.

    Their leadership style.

     
  2. 2.

    The stages of group development.

     
  3. 3.

    The needs of individual children.

     
  4. 4.

    The need for debriefing and supervision.

     
  5. 5.

    Review and evaluation of the programme.

     
  6. 1.

    Their leadership style.

     
  7. 2.

    The stages of group development.

     
  8. 3.

    The needs of individual children.

     
  9. 4.

    The need for debriefing and supervision.

     
  10. 5.

    Review and evaluation of the programme.
