At some point in their lives, most children will experience adversity; often, these experiences are traumatic. Many children experience the stress of a move, divorce, or the death of a family member. Some suffer physical or emotional abuse, neglect, bullying, or violence by their parents, caregivers, or others.
Research shows that students experience higher academic achievement in classrooms where social and emotional skills are taught. Social and Emotional Learning programs are linked to fewer behavior problems, better mental health, improved attitudes in school, and increased prosocial skills.
Build to Nurture prepares children with the social and emotional skills they need to become caring, nurturing, and contributing members of their families and communities.
