ABOUT THIS WEBINAR:
Social-emotional development has often been referred to as the “secret ingredient” for children’s success. Children with a strong social-emotional foundation not only do better academically, but also tend to be happier, have more friends and show a greater motivation to learn. All early childhood professionals play an important role in helping children feel competent and confident as they begin to learn how to develop relationships and friendships; understand, label, and manage emotions; and solve problems. This webinar will share ideas, strategies, and resources for teaching these important social-emotional skills as well as partnering with families as they support their children’s development.
