More about this group

Social Skills Group for Early Childhood

These small group play sessions will prepare children with the social tools to learn, thrive, and reach their potential. Children will learn to make attachments, take initiatives, practice self-control, delay gratification and develop self-worth through problem solving and conflict resolution experiences. In past research studies, many children have become more aware of their own and others' feelings and have learned to express them appropriately and safely. Being in a small group with a few friends helps children develop the skills to communicate and cooperate with peers and the confidence needed to succeed socially and academically.
