At LPS we believe that the core principles of social and emotional development are as follows:

Social and emotional competence develops as children mature.

Social and emotional capabilities of children are intimately related to their achievement, social and emotional wellbeing and physical health and fitness.

Delays in children’s social and emotional development have serious implications for achievement and mental and physical health.

Social and Emotional development including the acquisition of social and emotional skills can be accelerated through a variety of learning experiences that we gear to children’s cognitive and social and emotional maturity.
