Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is happening in PreK! Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is happening in PreK!

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is a process through which children and adults obtain the skills to be able to regulate their emotions in a positive and effective manner. SEL is also the ability to read and understand not only our feelings and emotions but of the people around us as well. 

Social emotional skills allow us to create and maintain our friendships, let out our anger in a way that does not harm others and the skill to ask for help when needed! 

Calming centers are new to all of our preschool classrooms. A calming center consists of a calming cube and a variety of tools to help our students self-regulate. These tools include a pinwheel to practice deep breathing, stress balls to get out all of our frustrations and transfer energy, as well as books on different topics such as what we can do when we are angry or sad. 

If interested in practicing SEL skills at home with your child please reach out to Jantel Hines, our Family Support Specialist at jhines@d131.org or by phone at 630-299-7499.
