A Foundation for Life

The elementary years bring exciting new challenges and opportunities. It’s the ideal time to nurture social-emotional competence and develop foundational learning skills.

The evidence-based Second Step Program includes everything schools need to integrate social-emotional learning (SEL) into their classrooms and schoolwide. Using the Second Step curriculum has been shown to decrease problem behaviors, and it's designed to promote school success, self-regulation, and a sense of safety and support.

Specifically, children showed gains in prosocial skills, empathy, and conduct with the Second Step Program.
