Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Involves helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves and others; to form positive relationships and develop respect for others; to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings; to understand appropriate behaviour in groups; to have confidence in their own abilities.

Ideas to support learning at home:

  • Practise changing clothes by themselves.
  • Encourage children to go to the toilet independently and manage their own personal hygiene.
  • Play games that require increasing levels of concentration such as snap, pairs or puzzles.
  • Carry out activities that require children to share such as favourite toys, turn taking games or board games.
  • Have a conversation about each member of the family‚Äôs day, teach children that it is important to listen as well as speak.
