Early Childhood Character Ed


New this year! 

Our new lesson plans assist teaching staff as they work with children on social-emotional skills. Teachers tell us they love having additional lessons and idea related to teaching and reinforcing social-emotional skills! 

The Early Childhood Parent Survey gives programs valuable information about parent perceptions of their child’s program. The easy-to-use reports and data can be used for a program’s strategic planning, promotional material, and annual reports.


Social-Emotional Development Materials 

The 28 easy-to-use lessons focus on social-emotional development use a common vocabulary that reinforces concepts being taught in preschool. 

  • Supplement and enhance your existing social-emotional approach and curriculum. 
  • Offer common vocabulary for preschool and home that advance social-emotional development. 
  • Are linked with Teaching Strategies GOLD Assessment Social-Emotional Objectives & Dimensions. 
  • Can be used for PBIS Tier 1 strategies and can be adapted for Tier 2. 


Family Engagement 

Materials (in English and Spanish) help parents connect with their child’s program and promote positive parenting: 

  • Parent Guide promotes the common vocabulary (trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship) and offers fun activities for parents and children together. 
  • Parent Pages for each lesson help extend learning for the child and provide fun activities for parents and children. 
  • Parent materials and their use can help fulfill program requirements for parent communication, family engagement and parent involvement. 
  • The Early Childhood Parent Survey gives parents the opportunity to share about their experiences and give valuable feedback to the program. 


Free Materials, Training, and Parent Assessment 

Funding is available to a limited number of early childhood programs for training, materials, and to administer the Early Childhood Parent Assessment. Please contact us to learn more. 


What We’re Hearing 

“I think that the activities are wonderful and piggy back with our Second Step Curriculum and what we do with the Creative Curriculum.“ 

“It is one of those lessons you pull out again when you need to remind students of appropriate behavior in the classroom.” 

“I like that I can modify the lessons for my group of children.”
