What is Social Emotional Learning (SEL)?


Self-awareness: Know your strengths and limitations with a well-grounded sense of confidence, optimism, and a “growth mindset.”


Self-management: Effectively manage stress, control impulses, and motivate yourself to set and achieve goals.


Social-awareness: Understand the perspectives of others and empathize with them. We are all unique.


Relationship skills: Communicate clearly, listen well, cooperate with others, resist inappropriate social pressure, negotiate conflict constructively, and seek and offer help.


Responsible decision-making: Make constructive choices about personal behavior and social interactions based on ethics and safety.


Emotional Intelligence is as Important
as the ABC’s

  • Create a “Buddy Bench” to help kids identify others in need of a friend
  • Add positive messages on campus to promote social emotional skills and ideas
  • Implement Loose Parts Play on Kinder Yard


  • Focus on creating Learners, supporting healthy dialogues and a growth mindset:
    • “I know where I am going”
    • “I have the tools for the journey”
    • “I monitor my progress”
    • “I recognize when I am ready for what’s next”
    • “I know what to do next”
