Our Early Development Index (EDI) Spotlight No. 4 delves into the developmental domain: Emotional Maturity.
Social Competence measures whether students are meeting general standards of acceptable behavior in public places, controlling their behavior, cooperating with others, showing respect for adult authority, and communicating feelings and needs in a socially acceptable manner.
EDI in Action
- La Habra Little Learners designed “Readiness on the Road” to provide vital support and socialization for children ages 0-3 in high-need areas. This is a weekly event where parents and kids can build their social skills together.
- The Santa Ana Early Learning Initiative has hosted workshops for families to understand their children’s social skills and milestones as well as to provide information about behavior management techniques. They also host trainings and parent social groups to discuss learnings.
