Whole School Primary & Elementary Social & Emotional Learning Curriculum


Recommended for primary and elementary schools wanting to nurture a positive whole-school culture to improve social, emotional and mental health and reduce bullying. 

Empowering students to be their best requires a balanced mix of academics and teachings that nurture the heart, mind, and soul.

Science proves that Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is an essential ingredient for the happiness and well-being of both students and teachers. Our research concludes that combining SEL with kindness and mindfulness boosts its effectiveness and can significantly reduce anti-social and bullying behaviour.

Our whole school curriculum helps busy teachers incorporate these three critical elements into their classroom in an easy to use, step-by-step, evidence-based curriculum. 7 individual modules cater for each primary/elementary year level and help teachers save precious time with researched and ready to use lesson plans and resources that nurture emotional intelligence and help create a warm, inclusive and safe school community.

As all modules can be used with existing and new students for as long as you choose, this package represents excellent per child value.
