We believe Emotional Intelligence is the missing piece in traditional education. Facilitators at DCS understand the impact of their RELATIONSHIP with young children and thus, support and hold socio-emotional learning as the first building block in academic and emotional success. Educators/facilitators at DCS value human interactions, and look for opportunities to support emotional awareness and expression, guiding children through conflict by providing sustainable tools to build strong relationships and self-regulation. With a special emphasis on needs and feelings, DCS supports early learning experiences that not only engender socio-emotional and intellectual health in the now, but also aide in the development of neurological pathways in the brain through attached and connected relationships. Cutting-edge research shows these pathways are rapidly developing starting at birth through 7 years of age, creating neurological foundations necessary for later successes in life.
