Personal, Social & Emotional Development

What is personal, social and emotional development?

Personal, social and emotional development (PSED) is an essential part of the early years curriculum. PSED skills underpin children’s development in all other areas and your child may struggle to learn in the school environment if they have not developed the appropriate social and personal skills. Part of this area is being able to adapt behaviour and actions to different situations – your child is not expected to sit smart and quiet all of the time! Equally, they are learning how to make relationships and working out different social situations, which is an ongoing process.
