Healthy social, emotional and behavioral well-being is defined as a child’s developing capacity to:
• Form close, secure, meaningful relationships
• Experience, regulate and express emotions
• Explore the environment and learn new skills
Children’s development takes place within the caregiving environment around them. We can create places where children thrive.
