Personal Social and Emotional Development

PSED is all about helping children to form a positive sense of themselves and others, develop positive relationships and respect others, develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings, understand appropriate behaviour in groups and to have confidence in their own abilities. When children are very small, they naturally believe that life is all about them, and they’re the centre of the universe. It takes time for them to understand about others, and learning to share is a huge milestone for many children in this age group. Gradually encourage your child to start to do more for themselves with simple everyday activities, like putting on and taking off their coat, and be ready to support if they need help. Being independent enough to do more activities for themselves builds up self-esteem, self-awareness and develops the neuron connections in the brain which helps to improve children’s learning in the future.
