Mental Health

The Preschool Program has three Mental Health Specialists whose role is to support staff and families with access to mental health services and information on social-emotional health. The Mental Health Specialist observes children's social-emotional development in the classroom and uses Conscious Discipline interventions to help children manage their behaviors and emotions. Parents and teachers are provided with suggestions on helping children identify emotions, build positive relationships, and develop healthy coping skills.

The Mental Health Specialists host parenting classes to help parents learn the Conscious Discipline techniques taught in the classroom. They also provide one-on-one support if families request thru home visits, virtual meetings, or phone conferences.
