 SOCIAL SKILLS CLUB (Twos – 5/6)

Mondays and/or Wednesdays until 2:15

The Social Skills Club is an after-school program designed for all learners to harness their energy and potential by teaching them to listen, pay attention, manage behavior and get along with others in a group setting. When students enter kindergarten with the self-regulation and a social-emotional foundation they are ready to learn. The Social Skills Club will be facilitated with evidence-based Second Step Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) so that children are set up for success.

The program promotes success in the early learning setting, school readiness, and social and life success by directly teaching children the skills that strengthen their ability to learn, have empathy, manage emotions, make friends and solve problems.  The program helps to prevent problem behaviors, peer rejection, impulsivity, anxiety, antisocial behavior and aggression by developing children’s self-regulation skills and social-emotional competencies.

Children will eat lunch and will play on the playground in addition to the scheduled activities.
