Social and emotional learning is BIG for early childhood development.

Social and emotional learning is how Latino and all kids acquire the knowledge and skills to manage emotions, set positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, and build strong relationships.

With strong social and emotional skills, kids overcome challenges and avoid unhealthy behavior. They also do better in and after school, and are more likely to become healthy, functioning adults.

How can we find ways to optimize the teaching of social and emotional learning to kids?
