Promoting Social Emotional Learning in Early Childhood
Building a Foundation for the Future:
Promoting Social Emotional Competency in Infants and Toddlers

Social competency can seem mysterious. Some infants and toddlers seem to connect easily with everybody and others seem to struggle to fit in. Social and emotional competence involves a child’s ability to regulate and express emotions and form close and secure relationships. It involves skills such as self-confidence, curiosity, motivation, persistence, and self-control. Infant/Toddler professionals have an important role in promoting the social emotional learning.

Grounded in the research-based “Pyramid Model” developed at the Center on the Social Emotional Foundation of Early Learning (CSEFEL), this series will utilize material from the CSEFEL Infant/Toddler training modules to  provide a thorough framework of strategies to support emerging social emotional competence in very young children.

professional’s role in promoting social emotional learning.

This will include strategies for supporting parents in forming positive secure relationships.
