At Children of Africa, we are here to help create confident, healthy, and loving future leaders, but to do this, we must teach self-accountability. At this school, we focus highly on emotional intelligence and emotional accountability.
Children of Africa focuses a great deal on understanding one’s emotions. We believe there are no bad emotions, just ways in which we can learn to express and understand them (in a loving and non-judgemental way). We believe that every person is an emotional being and must learn techniques for healthy emotional expression. We think that if you’re able to navigate and take responsibility for your own emotional wellbeing, this will lead to more self-compassion and a more overall compassionate world. The goal is to instill positive tools leading towards more self-awareness.
We have many activities and books that focus on the complexity of emotions. We plan to teach this heavily throughout the year.
