The Pyramid Model for supporting social and emotional competence in young children is being promoted in many states.

In this podcast, Cindy and Priscilla encourage listeners to have confidence in your skills and abilities to provide an environment that gives children what they need based on developmentally appropriate practice rather than whatever the 'prevailing winds" may be. When it comes to the push for academics, we need to trust our early childhood education and training in what children need most to be successful learners in our environments. We also need to learn to articulate why our practices are part of 'readiness' for children along all their developmental domains.(Length: 10:17)
In the final podcast of Dr. Perry’s Six Acquired Strengths, Priscilla Weigel and Cindy Croft will offer strategies for promoting awareness, tolerance, and respect in young children as they grow, develop, and reach their full potential. We want children to have friends, accept differences, and appreciate diversity in their world. The early childhood community can do many things to support children in these important emotional milestones.(Length: 10:44)
In Part 2 of Dr. Perry’s Six Acquired Strengths, we will discuss the importance of self regulation in preschoolers and its impact on social skill development.
