Personal, Social and Emotional Development is one of seven areas of development we focus on in Early Years at BSY.

Confidence and awareness

The children build their confidence in trying new activities and saying why they like some activities more than others. They become confident to speak in a familiar group, will talk about their ideas, and will choose the resources they need for their chosen activities. They say when they do or don’t need help.

Managing feelings and behaviour

The children talk about how they and others show feelings. They talk about their own and others’ behaviour and its consequences, and they know that some behaviour is unacceptable. They work as part of a group or class, and understand and follow the rules. They adjust their behaviour to different situations and adapt to changes in routine in stride.

Building relationships

The children play cooperatively, taking turns with others. They take account of one another’s ideas about how to organise their activity. They show sensitivity to others' needs and feelings and form positive relationships with adults and other children.


Our international preschool creates memorable childhood experiences that will nurture your child’s love of learning.
