The Responsible Living Curriculum component deals with the physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual dimensions of human development in terms of issues that are personally relevant for children. In doing so, the curriculum integrates concepts and contents from a variety of curriculum areas including health education, physical education and home economics. The curriculum is designed to help teachers maintain, reinforce, and enhance those skills, attitudes and behaviors that enable children to increase control over and improve their personal well-being. This process involves:
- Care of one’s self ( the decisions and actions children take in the interest of their own health and well being);
- Care of others ( the attitudes children form and the actions they take to support one another and help each other to cope and grow);
- Care of the environment (the creation of conditions and surroundings that are conducive to health and well-being).
