“To reach a child’s mind, a teacher must capture his heart. Only if a child feels right can he think right” - Gartrell

In your professional or personal life
Emotional Intelligence (EI) is key to your success
Why is EI important in the ECE field?
Emotional development begins in the earliest years; including prenatal (AAP)
During the first stage of psychosocial development (birth-1yr), children develop a sense of trust when caregivers provide reliability, care, and affection. A lack of this will lead to mistrust. (Erikson)
Interactions with parents and teachers carry emotional messages.
Repetitive interactions send messages that form the child's emotional development and capabilities.
Teachers who are aware of their own EI will better support the emotional development of a child.
