Setting Up for Social Emotional Learning

Author: Jan Blaxall, MASc, RECE, AECEO.C

1 ECE Hour

For the last few decades, research and clinical practice have demonstrated and continue to provide evidence to advocate the importance of social and emotional development.  As the professionals who work with, care for and educate children, we must pay attention and intentionally do our part to ensure that we provide environments and relationships that support this crucial development for all children.


In this webinar, you will hear about several ways that you can create opportunities and possibilities for social-emotional earning as an essential component of curriculum for children from infancy to age 12. We hope that you will be inspired and also provided with the framework for developing your goals and roles in this important aspect of children’s days with you.

By doing so we will set them in a positive direction to be able to learn academically in group situations, because they will have the foundational skills to make friends and work in groups, which are needed lifelong skills.
