Posted on 01-08-2015

johns_creek_ga_preschoolPreschool is important in your child’s brain and emotional intelligence development. Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Johns Creek Parkway, Georgia understands that both emotional and mental learning need to be present in the preschool years. We have prepared a short piece on the importance of emotional intelligence knowledge growth during this period.

What is Emotional Intelligence?

Many have heard the term emotional intelligence, or “EQ”, but it is often misunderstood. Simply put, EQ is the ability to recognize and distinguish between the vast amounts of emotions which we experience. This includes being able to think and behave in a specific manner, and to understand and control the specific emotion being shown. With a child, it is highly important to foster this as it develops your child for the social aspects of preschool and life in general.

The benefits of fostering EQ

Even though teaching EQ does not happen in the same way as a regular learning experience, it does not mean it should be forgotten. The way in which EQ is fostered in your child is through proper childcare techniques. Basically, anything from holding your child, playing with your child, listening to your child, and setting great examples will increase the quality of your child’s EQ.

Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Johns Creek Parkway has a vast amount of knowledge on child care and educational strategies to aid your preschooler.
