The Curriculum

Recognising emotions in self and others

Understanding causes and consequences

Labelling emotions

Expressing emotions

Regulating Emotions Effectively.

A structured system to emotional intelligence adapted for young children. RULER shows the five core skills of emotional intelligence: Recognise, Understand, Label, Express and Regulate.

Supporting their learning is a playful environment seen through Yoga poses, dancing and creative tools that speak to children.

Children are slowly exposed to eight base emotions to understand that not only do we experience more than anger or sadness, but that those emotions are often not even the first emotion we feel.

Why should children join the program?

​Teacher Paula teaches young children at school and practises RULER in her classroom. Her passion for the program inspired us to provide the opportunity to learn emotional intelligence outside of her classroom.

Our children's small bodies experience more stress than we give them credit. Classroom lessons, competition in sport and constant activities are all stressors and can make our children mentally tired. Yet, children do not always recognise their feelings and have no tools to work through their emotions. Should we feel surprised by the occasional outburst? 

Using the input from children during a class, we create an environment of safety that encourages their self-confidence and keep them engaged in the program.

Emotional intelligence

Emotional intelligence (EQ) clearly correlates with leadership and is a crucial skill for the future. Many brilliant people fail to become good leaders due to a lack in their Emotional Intelligence.

Having self-awareness and regulating our emotions helps us in social situations. It also helps improve empathy as we start to recognise what others are experiencing. All these skills are what makes natural leaders so influential in the world.

 

By teaching these skills to children at a young age, we improve their chances of becoming emotionally well-rounded and strong adults.
