About This Webinar:

Social–emotional development has often been referred to as the “secret ingredient” for children’s success. Children who have a strong social–emotional foundation not only do better academically, but also tend to be happier, have more friends and show 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.
