We learn about emotions.

We help children build their emotional vocabulary, develop their bank of coping tools, and practice neuroscience-backed strategies we can use to navigate all sorts of feelings.

We build social connections.

Our curriculum reinforces assertive communication strategies, the importance of contribution, and how to create positive and meaningful relationships with others.

We develop resilience.

Our POD method of instruction integrates play, others, and downtime exercises to create dialogue on resilience, goal setting, and using our “growth” mindset to overcome obstacles.

We practice innovation.

We encourage creativity, trial-and-error, and using failure as an opportunity to grow. We teach children the design cycle and the importance of thinking outside-the-box.

"Very positive and encouraging lessons. As a parent, I learned new things as well!"
