“Most people say that it is the intellect which makes a great scientist. They are wrong: it is character.” – Albert Einstein
Social, Emotional, and Ethical Development
It is a SEE-based approach to education that goes beyond the typical emphasis on “reading, writing, arithmetic”. It introduces the “Kindness Curriculum” to local kindergartens and provides professional training for teachers.

A framework that incorporates additional crucial components as next steps needed within SEL, such as attention training, the cultivation of compassion and care, and an appreciation of interdependence.
