EWECC School Psychologist Leads Social Groups

Children at the Eleanor Whitmore Early Childhood Center are learning about social skills during sessions with Jacqueline Rambo, the school psychologist.

Ms. Rambo is meeting with small groups for conversation and activities that allow children to practice positive interaction with others.

The sessions are part of the Center’s social-emotional learning curriculum, which helps children develop self-awareness, awareness of others, self-esteem, compassion, confidence, and other key attributes. Support and instruction help our students build the strength and resilience that allows them to succeed socially as well as academically.

The Center’s social-emotional curriculum program is supported by grants from the Yale Child Study Center and the Devereux Center for Resilient Children, allowing us to implement research-based programs in social-emotional growth and assessment.
