In this training, we will discuss what healthy social-emotional development is and why it is important. We will explore tools and strategies child care providers and teachers can use to address the social-emotional needs of children in their programs and help them see how they are already supporting social-emotional development with children. Children with well-developed social-emotional skills are better able to: express their ideas and feelings, display empathy toward others, manage their feelings of frustration and disappointment, feel self-confident, make and sustain friendships more easily, and succeed in school.
