Private Place Center

Young children are learning to deal with emotions. They need to learn to identify their own emotions and the emotions of others. They are beginning to understand and follow rules of behavior. These skills help young children develop self-regulation, a very important part of child development. Self-regulation includes interacting effectively with others and developing self-control. The Private Place Center will help young children learn self-awareness, a greater understanding of feelings, and ways to manage their behavior.

This power point includes information on how to design and use the Private Place Center effectively in early childhood classrooms.
