Connect 2 Kindergarten (C2K)

Kindergarten is a foundational year for children. Positive relationships between teachers and their students can predict social-emotional and academic success of children through 8th grade.

What can you do to ensure more of your students have a positive experience?

C2K was created to respond to teacher requests for a pragmatic SEL approach that helps enhance teacher skills and their understanding of working with young children entering Kindergarten, especially those with no pre-school experience and those exhibiting challenging behaviors. While C2K includes PD workshops, its strength is weekly, confidential classroom observation and consultation sessions with the teacher. These sessions help teachers build real-time interventions that contribute to stronger and more positive relationships with their students. C2K includes classroom groups and parent workshops led by clinical social workers with specialized knowledge of early childhood development and school-based interventions.
