Our Vision: School Readiness
WE BELIEVE that relationships play a major role in the wiring of social-emotional intelligence.
The characteristics of social-emotional intelligence are the same key ingredients for school readiness. Those characteristics are: Exhibits self-confidence; expresses natural curiosity; makes thoughtful choices; exhibits self control (controls impulses, delays gratification); relates to others (reads social cues); knows feelings of others and expresses concern (empathy); calming strategies; communicates needs, desires and ideas; problem solves (negotiates and compromises). This list of characteristics was developed in a study in 1968 and has not changed in every study done (each decade) since. There is no order of importance, nonetheless, each one is important in determining the success of your child in school and in life itself.
