F. Your Classroom Family: Supporting Social Emotional Learning Through Routines

Let’s get back to the basics. Early learning programs are often thought of as places where children prepare to get ready for the school environment. We often forget the environment preschool replaces the home. Join in looking at the key routines home and families have that promote school readiness. We will consider how early learning programs can infuse these routines into their daily activities. You will leave with a broader perspective of preschool routines and with ideas that support more natural social and emotional learning environments.
