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 Second Step K–5 Suite provides a fully integrated framework for protecting elementary school students and promoting their social, emotional, and academic success. By combining our Bullying Prevention Unit and Child Protection Unit with our foundational Second Step Social-Emotional Learning, we’ve simplified an approach for safe, supportive schools. Each component’s lessons are age-appropriate, easy to teach, and fun to learn. Online resources and training are also included.

Thriving Students

Students gain the skills they need to become caring, confident, and capable learners and problem-solvers.

Many of our students come to us without the social-emotional skills they need to become productive adults in a world that is increasingly becoming smaller and flatter. Since the skills can be taught, I feel it is imperative that we as educators do more to teach self-management, relationship building, cooperation, and conflict resolution.
