Our curriculum focuses on social emotional intelligence. We allow, recognize and name feelings as tools for developing empathy. We model empathy. We practice healthy boundaries. We foster resilience by experiencing disappointment, frustration, sadness, and anger in a safe environment that allows the child to work through their feelings without rescuing or distracting them from it, in order to develop trusting relationships and validate their true authentic selves.
Our program runs from September 1st - June 30th and is for children 18 months to 3.5 years old. Parent participation is required. See below for details.
