SEAL PROGRAM

This twice-weekly, 10-week program uses the VEYLF outcomes and is fully assessed by our staff for children's progress and supplied to educators. The program is tailored to your specific need and is delivered by our staff WITH your staff. Coaching for one staff member is an additional option to support planning and staff development. 

 

SEAL encourages educators and families to listen to and learn about children's understandings of themselves and their world, through play and shared experiences. Children will maintain a strong sense of personal success lesson after lesson as they navigate their way to being confident and involved creators of their social environments. 

 

Children will learn to be inclusive in their friendships and foster a sense of belonging in all environments.  Children will navigate complex and sometimes difficult emotional experiences and SEAL will give them the tools and strategies to not only cope but thrive through trauma.
