Social and Emotional Development

At Innovation & Exploration STEM Early Learning Center, we provide a safe and nurturing environment where children can freely communicate their needs and emotions as well as conflict resolutions. We support a child’s self-identity and social competence by modeling respect for the child. We use positive guidance techniques that support each child’s development of self-control and a sense of competence. At IE we also believe that positive social and emotional development plays an important role when teaching young children. These developments promote self-confidence, independence, self-control, and self-awareness. They also enhance the ability to understand, recognize and manage emotions as they develop meaningful relationships with others.
