Confident Kid Club’s social skills groups are for children ages 3 – 10. Groups are mixed age level and are comprised of children with a range of competencies and challenges. This model allows us to maximize each child’s potential. Peer modeling, leadership skills and confidence building are some of the many benefits of mixed age groups. Children participate in play activities designed to improve impulse control and executive functioning skills; cultivate age-appropriate language and social emotional development, and build self-esteem. These critical social emotional skills are developed through movement, art, music and collaborative social skills games and activities. All groups are led by Confident Kid Club’s Special Education Certified Facilitators Katharine Page and Carmella Crowley. The groups meet on a weekly basis over a 9 week period at Huguenot Memorial Church in Pelham, NY.
