Looking after children’s emotional development has always been important, but in today’s uncertain times it is more important now than ever.
Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is the ability to understand and manage your own emotions, and to recognise and comprehend the emotions of those around you. Nurturing emotional intelligence in children is key to their emotional well-being and mental health. This is a key part of their development throughout their early years and into school.
SEL, or Social & Emotional Learning, is a vitally important part of children’s schooling where they learn to socialise and manage their emotions, helping them to become more resilient, successful adults.
