To support social and emotional development and to provide positive guidance, I am always present and acknowledge each child. I greet them with a smile. I say good morning when they come into the school. I ask them how they are doing and give them a hug. I will ensure them that they are in a safe place. I will show them guidance in a positive loving way.

I will greet each child by his or her name. Each child will have their own hook to hang their bag and belongs. I encourage them and let them know that they are doing a great job. I hang their art at eye level so that they can see it. The class makes family picture books with their names in it so we can get to know all of their families. This helps the class learn, respect and recognize each other’s cultural background.
