What is SEL Day?

SEL stands for Social Emotional Learning and #SELday was created in response to the overwhelming support and demand for SEL to support children in school and at home.

The theme of #SELday this year is Uplifting Hearts, Connecting Minds, and that’s what we hope to do by sharing the story of ‘Freeing Freddie the Dreamweaver’.

The magical story of Freeing Freddie helps children:

“We know that teaching emotional intelligence at an earlier age lays the foundation for managing emotions, self-regulation, empathy, improved relationships, and a better self-concept, among other benefits.

Why wouldn't we want to provide this type of curriculum for our children? Freeing Freddie offers a hands-on, interactive, beautifully engaging experience for kids to learn and grasp important concepts such as understanding how our thoughts and feelings influence our behaviors and empowers kids in knowing that they have a choice in how they respond. Freeing Freddie is a welcoming way to start these important conversations."
