We recognize the importance of self-regulation and it’s link to high self-esteem. Therefore we offer a rich social and emotional program where your child is asked to recognize his/her feeling and is supported while they learn to self soothe. The curriculum emphases recognizing one's feeling and then walking away from play to take care of those feelings. We support this because your child and peers feel safe during expressions of "strong and big feelings". Children are supported by healthy role models that acknowledge, empathize, and support your child's feelings instead of avoiding them or "sweeping them under the rug".
We also have weekly group discussions on social setting like, how we want to be treated and how we should treat each other. We avoid shame or blame placed on any child. Shaming or blaming children stops learning from happening. We understand that children are going through changes and we provide a safe place for them to express all their feelings and especially the BIG ones.
We also believe your child is capable of negotiating for what he/she needs in healthy ways. We support your child by offering words that help in express their needs and gently guide them through a healthy process of negotiations.
