Preschool Social Emotional Development

At The Country School, we place an emphasis on social and emotional development and how to foster positive, meaningful and empathetic relationships, as emotional competence can be considered the key to strong social skills. During all facets of the preschool program, we incorporate important skills that will encourage positive social behavior among all children, while enabling them to label their emotions and interpret others, regulate their impulses, practice understanding different perspectives and role playing, and understand the causes and effects of feelings.

The teachers act as guides and role models to encourage the development of problem-solving techniques that provide many opportunities for children to learn independently and in cooperation with their fellow peers. In addition, we set clear and easy-to-understand guidelines to promote success and confidence at all levels.
