Emotions are a combination of physical and mental states, which react upon each other. Understanding the way a child reacts to situations, redirecting his/her reactions, and helping him/her to attain necessary satisfaction are important to the child's growth. Westlake UM Preschool helps the child grow emotionally by:
- encouraging the child to see emotions as a natural and acceptable life process;
- helping to direct and channel emotions into constructive use;
- understanding and accepting certain limits; and
- helping each child develop self-esteem.
