Competency Goal III
To support social and emotional development and to provide positive guidance Functional Area 8: Self
To support social and emotional development and to provide positive guidance I provide a positive relationships through daily interactions of warm, loving, consistent care.

I ensure that I am always available when the children have to separate from their parents, when they are tired, when they fall and hurt themselves, when they want to play or when they just need to be comforted or hugged. I ensure their needs are always met promptly. Each and every morning I greet each child with a smile and a "Good Morning" followed by his/her name. This makes the child feel special and welcomed. I encourage the other children in the class to say good morning as well. I encourage each child to address their class mates and I by our names.

Sometimes this can be a challenge, so I use positive redirection. I ensure that their environment has many options and choices in which they may choose from in order for them to build a strong sense of independence....
