Build Social and Emotional Skills in the Classroom, Birth through Third Grade

Spotlight on Young Children: Social and Emotional Development

Children’s experiences and relationships during their formative years have a far-reaching impact, and early childhood professionals play a critical role in fostering the social and emotional competence children need to process and learn from these interactions.

This collection of articles explores how teachers can use caring relationships, classroom practices, routines, and lessons to nurture healthy behaviors in children from birth through third grade.

Ronald Lally and Peter Mangione, Co-Directors of WestEd’s Center for Child & Family Studies, authored a key article in the collection, “Caring Relationships: The Heart of Early Brain Development.”
