If only raising healthy children simply required nutritious food, regular exercise, and sufficient sleep. Life in the modern world is exponentially more complicated. Children need to know how to navigate tricky social situations, use digital devices safely, and cultivate healthy relationships.
That’s why we offer wellness programming for students and parents alike. Our Lower School Counselor teaches lessons in the classroom and meets with students individually or in small groups to address social-emotional needs. At grade-level Parent Association meetings, you will get guidance on helping your child develop “soft skills,” foster independence and resilience, and deal with disappointment. Today’s parents and educators support children through modern-day stressors that were unimaginable in their own childhoods, ranging from issues around social media to a pandemic. It takes more than common sense to raise healthy kids. We are here to help.
