Social-Emotional Learning

Teachers’ goal in kindergarten is to move each child towards independence and autonomy: expanding social skills, building confidence, developing problem-solving strategies, and communication skills as a means of getting their needs met and helping build community. Supporting social-emotional learning permeates our teaching. Teachers continually observe how children navigate work and play in order to tailor the lesson best to how each child learns.

Activities that support development:

  • Morning meeting
  • Collaborative work such as blocks or pumpkin seed estimation
  • Name study
  • Identity study
