Social and Emotional Learning Curriculum (Early Learners)



The INSTILL Social and Emotional learning (SEL) Curriculum is designed to promote children’s social and emotional learning for children ages two to six years old.

Our focus is to positively impact the lives of young children by providing them with the skills to understand and manage their emotions; respect themselves, others, and the environment; show compassion for others; have positive relationships; and make confident choices.

What can you expect from Instill SEL Curriculum?

The INSTILL SEL Curriculum takes a multi-disciplinary approach that uses music, creative art, movement, puppets and pretend play. Teaching the concepts in a variety of ways can create strong habits that form long-term thought patterns, attitudes, and actions. It also includes a clear plan of implementation and resources to aid teachers in laying a foundation for children’s social and emotional health.

Research shows us that one of the greatest factors in a person’s emotional health is having connected relationships (Murray, Greenberg, 2001). Our activities support child-caregiver bonds, healthy parent-child relationships, and a unique approach to positive peer role models through the use of MVP Kids character puppets and books. These connections provide a basis of trust to address serious life issues and challenges. Pair your INSTILL curriculum with a collection of MVP Kids books, and you’ll see the impact that relationships with our MVP Kids offers through clear, consistent messages from trusted friends.
