Social-emotional skills and good character can and should be nurtured from birth. Repton Schoolhouse has always believed character development is fundamentally important, which is why teaching values has been part of our rich heritage.
We know children are capable of developing foundational social-emotional skills and character traits at an early age.
With this in mind – and knowing the extent to which children’s early social-emotional development can shape their ability to cope, relate to others and show compassion later in life – at Repton Schoolhouse we nurture the children’s social-emotional development in a purposeful way.
Character development at Repton Schoolhouse is developed through the Virtues Project.
“Sow a thought, reap an action;
sow an action, reap a habit;
sow a habit, reap a character;
sow a character, reap a destiny.”
(Stephen R Covey, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People)
