Social-Emotional Learning

Social-emotional learning helps children develop vital skills that will aid them in managing and understanding their emotions while responding to the world around them. These skills include self-awareness (understanding your own emotions), self-management (regulating your emotions), social awareness (understanding and respecting others), relationship skills (listening, communicating, compromising), and responsible decision-making (taking into account yourself and others). In other words, SEL is helping children grow into more caring and responsible adults, which in turn will develop a more peaceful future!

SEL was part of Montessori education before it had a label, as Maria Montessori felt that the path to peace was through education. An education that gave children skills in how to interact with each other, such as the importance she put on grace and courtesy skills (such as how to introduce yourself and how to set the lunch table for your community), and in developing self-confidence through purposeful work and the respect and space given to children so they can teach themselves.

Current research proves that SEL improves academic achievement, increases prosocial behaviors, improves student attitudes toward school, and reduces depression and stress among students.

“Since we have the means to guide the child, it is clear that the formation of man is in our hands. We have the possibility to form the citizen of the world and the study of the young child is fundamental to the peace and progress of humanity.” -Maria Montessori
