Childhood is a time when children learn about themselves and discover who they are, such as understanding their place in the world and finding out why certain situations affect them the way they do. As children grow up, social and emotional skills like regulating emotions and following instructions become even more important. Allowing your child to master social emotional skills prepares him/her for the future and sets him/her up for success throughout life.
The importance of social emotional skills for preschoolers cannot be underestimated. It’s a crucial time to help children develop the emotional regulation, communication, and behavioural skills they will use for the rest of their lives. It is important to note that social and emotional learning will extend beyond parent-child relationships. Teachers also play a significant role in promoting healthy social and emotional development.
At My First Skool, our learning philosophy encourages children to relate to one another and work cooperatively in small groups. In class, children will have the opportunity to share their likes and dislikes, talk about their feelings, take responsibility for their actions, and form positive relationships with their teachers and peers.
