Improved Behaviour, Improved Learning
Help your littlest learners harness their energy and potential by teaching them to listen, pay attention, control their behaviour, and get along with others. When students enter kindergarten with the self-regulation and social-emotional skills taught in the research-based Second Step program, they're set up for success. The program supports Learning Outcomes 1 to 5 outlined in The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia.
