Helping your child develop social skills is one of our top priorities at Clemens Home Preschool and Childcare in W. Cerritos Anaheim California. This is because we firmly believe that learning social skills as young as they are now can help prepare them for a lifetime of healthy interactions in all aspects of their life.
Social skills in an integral ability that one needs in order to function properly in society. From communicating effectively with other people; to displaying good manners; to being considerate of other people’s feelings – these are just some of the vital components of strong social skills.
At Clemens Home Preschool and Childcare, we can help your child build strong social skills by:
- Allowing them to explore and learn through play. Playing is a way for your child to learn too – it is not just something that is done to pass the time. At Clemens Home Preschool and Childcare, we provide a safe and secure environment that allows your child to explore to their heart’s content. Moreover, you can rest assured that our professional educators would watch them closely as they engage in the different activities that we have prepared for them.
- Teaching them about feelings. Our educators make sure to discuss feelings with your children as well. By discussing how your child feels, they eventually learn words that are associated with feelings – words that they can later use to talk about how they feel. This will help them talk about their feelings instead of acting out on their anger.
- Acknowledging accomplishments. Reinforcing positive feedback is something that we promote at Clemens Home Preschool and Childcare. Whether your child has completed their first artwork; got an A on their test; accomplished their role in a dramatic play – we make sure to acknowledge these accomplishments. This helps in boosting their self-confidence and allows them to feel secure in their development.
- Encouraging your child to make friends. Making friends is important – not just for fun and to have playmates; but it is an important social skill as your child grows older as well. Being able to make friends is a very important social skill in adulthood and at Clemens Home Preschool and Childcare, we teach your child this skill by teaching them how to introduce themselves; how to interact with their friends properly; how to deal with conflict, and etc.
These are just some ways wherein we can help your child develop strong social skills. We can assure you that our programs at Clemens Home Preschool and Childcare in W. Cerritos Anaheim California are carefully designed to help your child become the best person that they can be.
