About the Program

Build to Nurture prepares young children with social and emotional skills they need to become caring, nurturing, and contributing members of their families and communities. It includes 8 interactive lessons that easily integrated into Pre-K through 1st grade classrooms with hands-on learning, and center activities. Parental involvement is encouraged through Home Connections. Lessons and strategies are evidence-informed and designed to improve classroom climate and promote inclusion, community, and connection.

Why is this program needed?

  • Students dealing with outside stressors may come to school agitated, distracted, and disconnected which is often visible in classroom
  • Trauma and negative experiences can affect a child’s social and emotional functioning and mental health.
  • Educators are expected to help students thrive socially and intellectually regardless of the factors influencing their behavior. Each year, less class time is spent nurturing students’ social and emotional development.
