Here at Little Discoveries we believe the social and emotional development is the foundation for learning. To help you better understand the importance of developing social and emotional skills please read the below.
Social-emotional development includes all the skills and abilities that help children succeed in both school and life, from self-control to building early friendships.
Strong, positive relationships help children develop trust, empathy, compassion and a sense of right and wrong.
Gaining social and emotional skills enables children to learn from teachers, make friends, express thoughts and feelings, and cope with frustration. These kinds of skills, in turn, directly influence cognitive learning such as early literacy, numeracy and language skills.
A child who cannot remain calm, focus on a task and stick with it will not be able to take advantage of an opportunity to interact with an adult who is reading her a story—an activity that effectively promotes early language and literacy skills. Learn how policies at the state level can support healthy social-emotional development in infants and toddlers.
