Social-Emotional and Mental Health
Social-emotional development is a fundamental part of a child's overall health and well-being. Healthy social-emotional development, which is sometimes defined as early childhood mental health, correlates with healthy cognitive development and therefore creates a strong foundation for future school and life achievement.
