school age care programs, emotional intelligence


This is a study of emotional intelligence in school age children. The skills of emotional intelligence are essential for individuals to be successful, productive members of society. Children are experiencing increased pressure for academic achievement. Parents are juggling family with the demands of work, school, and social responsibilities. In School Age Care programs, staff has the opportunity for a few hours a day to help children learn self-awareness, impulse control, motivation, and social skills. This checklist is designed to help staff learn the language of emotional intelligence. They can quickly look at their program to determine the ways in which it helps children develop these necessary skills. The checklist also provides staff with the vocabulary to advocate for children, with professionals in other fields such as education and psychology.
