‘In a world where you can be anything- Be Kind’- ~Jennifer Dukes Lee
There are many benefits of teaching a child to be kind; small acts of kindness can start from the very beginning. Teaching and encouraging kindness is related to many positive outcomes. Scientific studies have shown that kindness has a great number of physical and emotional benefits, and that children require a healthy dose of warmth and love in order to flourish as cheerful and versatile individuals. Matters of the heart must be taken seriously and nurtured as a matter of priority.
At school, we do our best to encourage small acts of kindness. Learning to share, learning to wait for your turn, helping a friend, smiling at each other are many of the little acts of kindness that our children are learning on a daily basis. This will lead to a strong personal, social and emotional development in the future.
