A place where we encourage our youth to establish a healthy connection to themselves, their environment, and the people around them.
The emotionally intelligent child is one who can label her own emotions accurately, regulate them and control reactions to them; for example, she can verbalize her anger or frustration and think of ways to defuse her feelings . When you teach kids emotional intelligence, how to recognize their feelings, understand where they come from and learn how to deal with them, you teach them the most essential skills for their success in life. Research has shown that emotional intelligence or EQ “predicts over 54% of the variation in success (relationships, effectiveness, health, quality of life).”
Each program offered is carefully designed to help kids develop an array of emotional tools, that they can draw upon as they learn to navigate the natural challenges of life.
