Fun with Friends

Learning social skills is an essential part of early childhood development. By teaching and reinforcing appropriate social interactions at an early age, we enable our children to navigate difficult social situations in early childhood and in later life. There are two key ways to help our preschoolers appropriate social skills: 1) By correcting inappropriate interactions and reinforcing positive interactions in day to day life. 2) By setting up scenarios during playtime which establish set skills and encourage the use of those skills. When we develop games or activities that encourage participation in learning social skills, we are providing children with an opportunity to practice those skills. In addition, we are giving our children a specific event to reference in order to determine the correct behavior in typical daily situations.Accordingly, Nursery class executed different games and activities related to social skills development and good manners in class and school.
