Social-emotional learning is an essential building block of child development. During the past few months, we have faced the immense challenge of giving children opportunities to build community and feel a sense of belonging while separated from others. SEL plays a huge role in early childhood education (ECE) and must be embedded into every interaction we have with our students/children.
