Personal, Social and Emotional Development

This is a Prime Area of learning within the Early Years curriculum which supports children's development across all other areas of learning. The three aspects within Personal, Social and Emotional Development are:

Making Relationships

Self-Confidence and Self-Awareness

Managing Feelings and Behaviour

Here are the age related expectations (Early Learning Goals) for these three aspects by the end of Reception:

ELG Making Relationships:

Children play co-operatively, 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.

ELG: Self-Confidence and Self-Awareness:

Children are confident to try new activities, and say why they like some activities more than others. They are 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.

ELG: Managing Feelings and Behaviour

Children talk about how they and others show feelings, talk about their own and others’ behaviour, and its consequences, and 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 take changes of routine in their stride.
