|Holistic Approach & Social Emotional Learning (SEL)|
Since the whole child goes to school, the Pneuma STEM program will be delivered using a holistic approach with Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) supplemental programs that are designed to help support and nurture a child’s mind, body, emotional development and social sense of identity. Studies have shown when an educational program has (SEL) techniques at the core of its pedagogy with full integration of SEL skills in the daily schedule, there is generally an increase in self-esteem, improved abilities to help others, and a greater personal responsibility for resolving conflicts among participating youngsters (CASEL-Safe and Sound, 2003). These insights from experts have alerted Pneuma educators to the critical value of holistic education. By strengthening and increasing social and emotional educational opportunities, our Learning & Cultural Center will not only create a school culture that supports positive discipline, but it will also provide a strong institutional framework proven to increase all students’ capacity to learn.
