The paper examines the importance of a healthy self-esteem at the preschool age. The paper explains that this age can be especially vulnerable to the development of self-esteem since the students are being bombarded with social, emotional and academic decisions often for the first time. The paper discusses methods that a preschool teacher can use to help increase students' self-esteem, such as providing opportunities for the students to succeed, offering positive feedback and using projects and ideas that build on a child's ability to problem solve.
