A child’s social emotional development plays a huge role in their ability to find success in school and also later on in life.
According to the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL), children’s social and emotional development is important because it lays the foundation for how they learn to “… understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.”
I created these social emotional development checklists to help parents, educators, and counselors gain insight into how they can best support a child in order for them to thrive in the social and emotional development domain.
These social emotional development checklists are meant to be used as a point of reference. Not every child develops at the same pace, so there might be some variations for some children.
Additionally, these checklists are intended for educational purposes only. If you have any concerns about your child’s development, please contact your child’s pediatrician.

Here is what the social and emotional development checklists looks like. In case you are wondering, the checklist categories are based on the five social emotional development core competency clusters set forth by CASEL.
