Social and Emotional Learning

(light music) – For infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, warm and responsive care
from teachers gives children the confidence to learn
and build social skills. Infants build social
skills as teachers respond to their non-verbal
communication like babbling and waving their arms. Once your child becomes a toddler, she will show more interest in
playing with other children. Her increased language
skills help her relate to and include other children in her play. By the time your child is a preschooler, you may notice her building
more relationships with friends. As she learns to cooperate
with her friends, she might even start copying
things they do or say. In addition to children
learning social skills in early learning programs, teachers play a key role in building their emotional capacity. Teachers can support children
as they learn to understand and control their emotions
by being empathetic and encouraging children to do the same. (light music)
