Emphasis on
Social-Emotional Skills

Perhaps one of the greatest predictors of academic success is a child’s social-emotional health.  As caretakers and educators, we strive to help children understand and manage their emotions, feel and show empathy for others, establish healthy relationships, set positive goals, and make responsible decisions.  Our entire staff, from the Infant Room to the Elementary Age classroom, practice the evidence-based method of Conscious Discipline. 

 

Conscious Discipline starts with LOVE.  From the moment your child enters the program, they will feel like part of our family.  The first goal of each of our teachers is to establish a strong trusting relationship with each child.

 

With our guidance, children learn how to name their emotions, regulate them, and then solve problems independently and with the help of others.  Being able to regulate one’s emotions and behaviors gives children the ability to concentrate on more academic, teacher-led instruction. 

 

Our social-emotional program is not detached from other components of our program but rather built into all aspects of our day.
