Create a Strong Foundation for Lifelong Learning
Designed for Early Learning to Year 8, the evidence-based Second Step® Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Program features tools, teaching aids, activity guides, and resources for classroom teachers to ensure successful social-emotional skills instruction. In addition to the classroom materials, we offer online resources to help plan lessons, train staff, and communicate with families.
We take great pride in the fact that Second Step is based on current research in the field. Translating research findings into key components of our programs allows us to be confident our curricula will be effective in classrooms.
