Social & emotional skills programme during COVID-19
Grade : 1 & 2; 3 & 4, 5 &6
The programme provides children with a warm and nurturing environment that teaches them how to cope with life’s obstacles, foster healthy and positive relationships and boosts self-esteem. The development of social and emotional skills promote’s children’s ability to have an awareness of their feelings, cope with difficulties, manage themselves, relate to others and resolve conflict. In this way teaching children these practical skills also promotes resilience – the capacity to cope in spite of the negative things that happen through life. When children are taught specific strategies for recognising and responding to feelings, thinking through challenging situations and communicating effectively, they are less likely to act out frustrations.
The 8 social skills taught: self-awareness, self-management, social-awareness, gratitude, adaptability, resilience, coping with change and loss, optimistic-thinking.
6 children per group
We also offer an optional EQ assessment performed before and after the programme at an additional cost of R500.
