ALL Happy Hall employees are vaccinated!
Our number one priority continues to be the health and safety of the staff and children. We continue to evaluate our programs in partnership with local health officials to ensure we can offer programs that meet the current needs of our community. We are taking several precautionary measures.
Purpose of lifeskills:
To promote a sense of personal belonging and create a strong sense of community.
To support positive opportunities for social interactions.
To engage and recognize respectful and empathic feelings and behavior.
To practice positive interactions and problem solving.
To begin to enhance personal responsibility for his/ her actions and abilities.
To acquire skills that foster conflict resolution skills and social negotiation.
How is it incorporated into the curriculum?
To further promote the understanding of the seven lifeskills, we include daily group discussions (i.e. what if scenarios, how would you feel, what could you do to solve the problem), social development literature and curriculum activities that require the children to practice and demonstrate these abilities during collaborative play.
Each classroom has developed and uniquely designed an in class Lifeskill Center.
This is a tangible behavior incentive for the children to see their own progress.
We recognize the children’s progress and effort by providing them with an opportunity to contribute to the classroom Lifeskill Center. This tangible component reinforces positive problem-solving skills, the frequently used language and offers a visual, where they can track their collective efforts.
Showing kindness and concern. Thinking about other people’s feelings and being gentle with our friends is being caring.
The capacity to wait something out. We practice patience when we wait our turn to play a game, talk to a teacher, or use a tool.
The process of working together. We practice cooperation when we use teamwork and share ideas to complete a job.
Willingness to change or compromise. When something changes in our day, we need to be flexible and just go with it.
Trying our hardest and doing our best. We practice effort when we keep trying. We can always ask for help.
Doing what we are expected to do. We are all responsible for taking care of the camp, toys, books and work areas.
