Directors are always looking for great tools to help their teachers elevate their understanding of children’s development and best practice in group settings. SET for Life is such a tool. This book serves as the definitive early childhood educator’s guide to supporting strong emotional foundations and successful social relationships in children. It will help you and your teachers understand how children mature emotionally and socially, and how emotional well-being supports learning. SET for Life helps teachers view their work through a new lens when dealing with both normal and challenging behavior. The strategies described underscore the power of observation, the significance of language, the importance of self-regulation, the value of play, the influence of each child’s individuality, and the importance of an adult’s thoughtful, reflective approach.
