Why LearnHeart Skills?

In the early years, children’s brains are wiring up. They’re learning math, literacy, and science skills. They’re growing strong muscles. Social and emotional learning is at the HEART of it all as children learn to understand themselves and how they relate to others. The heart is a MUSCLE and growing kids with strong hearts takes practice. Start early and stick with it!

Little Kids, Big Hearts Podcast


Little Kids, Big Hearts is a new podcast that can help parents and educators introduce big topics in social and emotional learning to their children.
