Recognize. Express. Manage.
Helping children to develop emotional and social competencies, referred to as emotional intelligence, means providing children with experiences that allow them to become aware of their own emotions and those of others and helps them learn how to manage, cope, and express these emotions in constructive ways.
Woven throughout the fabric of our curriculum at Beginnings are the developmental skills necessary for helping a child build a sound emotional intelligence.
Research shows that when children learn these competencies within the first 3 to 5 years of life, during the time that the brain is most malleable to day to day experiences both at home and at school, provides the opportunity for children's executive functions to be advanced- attention, concentration, memory, impulse control, reasoning, judgment- all competencies critical and fundamental to one's success not only academically but also personally and interpersonally. Beginnings provides these fundamental foundations for children's success throughout their lifetime.
