Building Compassionate Leaders With Social Skills And Emotional Intelligence
At Alpha Green Preschool, we firmly believe that social and emotional development are essential skills children need to learn in order to become leaders.
At Alpha Green Preschool, we firmly believe that social and emotional development are essential skills children need to learn in order to become leaders. They are our preschool’s guiding principles because we believe in helping children build positive relationships, communicate effectively, and develop a sense of self-awareness and self-esteem. Leadership is only efficient if technical skills are combined with social skills and emotional intelligence.
The teachers at Alpha Green Preschool have two guides for this important task:
The IEYC Process of Learning is based on the principle that children learn best through hands-on experiences and play-based activities. The learning principles are designed to ensure that children's learning experiences are meaningful, relevant, and engaging.
For example, to teach children about interactions in a social setting, the lesson plan includes role-playing exercises. The scenario presented to the children is an imaginary visit to a medical facility. This helps children learn how to interact with doctors, how to talk about their health, and how to stay healthy.
The "Nurturing Early Learners (NEL) Guide to Social-Emotional Development" is a curriculum developed by the Ministry of Education of Singapore. It is a comprehensive resource that provides educators with practical strategies to support the social and emotional development of preschool children.
The guide focuses on five main concepts:
  1. The first concept discusses the role of relationships in promoting social-emotional development, highlighting the importance of building strong and meaningful relationships with the children and fostering teamwork in the classroom.
  2. The second concept focuses on creating a positive classroom environment that supports social-emotional learning, including strategies for establishing routines, promoting cooperation, and managing challenging behaviors.
  3. The third concept covers the development of self-awareness, self-regulation, and empathy. The guide provides specific activities and approaches that teachers can use to promote the development of these competencies.
  4. The fourth concept discusses the importance of involving families in supporting children's social-emotional development, including strategies for building partnerships with families and promoting positive family-school relationships.
  5. The final concept highlights the importance of supporting teachers' ability to promote social-emotional development.
Our teachers encourage children to express their emotions and provide them with tools to manage their feelings. By teaching children to identify and express their emotions, teachers help them develop self-awareness and emotional regulation. This helps children to develop a positive sense of self-esteem and self-worth.
Another important aspect of teaching social and emotional development is promoting community and belonging. Our teachers help children understand that they are part of a larger group and encourage them to work together to achieve common goals. By building a sense of community and belonging, our teachers help children to feel valued and respected.

Teaching social and emotional development helps children to understand and regulate their emotions, learn empathy and compassion, and develop social skills such as cooperation, sharing, and turn-taking. These skills are crucial for children's long-term success, as they influence how children interact with others and handle challenging situations, which is essential if they are to become compassionate leaders.
