A HEALTHIER SOCIETY

Social and emotional learning in theearly years leads to fewer social issuesand increased community involvement.

Our smallest citizens
can change our society.

 

Social and emotional learning in the early years provides the basic tools required to succeed as individuals and as contributing, engaged citizens. By giving our children the social and emotional tools they need to work together, we are creating the world we want and a more equitable society for us all.

 

From birth, the skills we develop can have a profound impact – not just on our own lives, but on the places where we live, work, and find community. In this context, SEL skills inspire empathy and a greater interest in the world around us, as well as the role we can play in changing our society for the better.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
– Margaret Mead
