Course Summary

Educators report that increasing their own emotional intelligence improves their engagement and experience off the job of being an early childhood educator. Managing emotions and response mechanisms in a healthy way improves educators’ well-being, creating a healthier environment for the children in their care. When we as adults have the skills to recognize and correctly identify emotions and practice emotion regulation skills, we can model, guide, and teach children in our care to do the same.
