Abstract

Traditionally, the marker of intelligence in a young child has been the speed of information retrieval. Now though, greater weight is placed upon a child's ability to hold a goal in mind and control their emotional responses. Social and emotional competence is linked with almost every possible child and educational outcome, and is broadly defined as an individual's effectiveness at managing his or her social and emotional experiences (Collie, Martin, Nassar, and Roberts, 2019; Denham, 2006). There is a strong evidence base that children who establish safe and secure relationships are more advanced in their social-emotional development, but such skills also facilitate interactions that support learning in other domains (O'Connor, Cloney, Kvalsvig, and Goldfeld, 2019).
