+ Emotional 

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.
