Why Social-Emotional Learning Matters

Sesame characters and children learning

It's Where Compassion Begins

Teaching kids to identify, express, and respond to emotions early builds empathy and kindness while helping them develop confidence and self-worth.

Instills a Solid Foundation

Giving kids the building blocks for life skills like resilience, impulse control, flexible thinking, and confidence lays a foundation for academic and personal growth.

Builds Essential Skills for Life

Kids can return to these valuable tools as they face different challenges throughout childhood, adolescence, and adulthood.
