Children’s Institute Recognizes and Celebrates International SEL Day!

10 March 2022 |

Social-emotional learning (SEL) is the process of developing those social and emotional skills that are essential for success in school, work, and life! Studies show that SEL provides many benefits to children and youth – from improving academic and social outcomes to developing a strong sense of identity to recognizing and valuing different perspectives and backgrounds. SEL competencies are also critically important for long-term success in today’s world. It is a lifelong process!
