Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Personal Social and Emotional Development (PSED) supports children to have a positive sense of themselves, respect for others, social skills, emotional well-being and a positive disposition to learning. These are all crucial for school readiness.

PSED is about children:

  • developing confidence and independence
  • making friends and getting on with others
  • learning about right and wrong
  • self-regulating their emotions
  • understanding about their own and others’ feelings
  • feeling good about themselves
  • being interested, excited and motivated about their play and learning
  • gaining self-respect for themselves
  • developing respect for their own culture and beliefs and those of others

We talked about how we feel when we make the wrong choices.  We explored that we have always have a choice and sometime we choose well, and sometimes wrongly. We talked about different scenarios and sorted them into ‘good’ or ‘bad’ choices.
