Social Emotional Intelligence
Social emotional learning is one of our four pillars at Valley Academy because we believe that the school and classroom settings are the perfect environments for learning and practicing these important life skills on a daily basis. When you give a child the skills and knowledge to handle their emotions in a healthy and positive way, you open up their possibilities. A child can believe that they are the only one who feels what they feel. They can think that there is something wrong with them because they don't understand or are controlled by their emotions. When children learn how to recognize and navigate their emotions appropriately, they gain a sense of confidence that is applied to all of their other learning experiences.
