Discussing Race With Young Children

Interest in race and racism, diversity and inclusion is growing, but many parents and caregivers are searching for the “right” way to introduce the conversation and to answer young children’s questions. Visit our new interactive guide for families (and the companion guide for educators) to get a step-by-step, action oriented guide you can use to start the conversation with the toddlers and littles in your life. 


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

Little Kids, Big Hearts is a podcast for kids and families that can help parents and educators introduce big topics in social and emotional learning to their children. The podcast, which is hosted by an early childhood educator and social-emotional learning coordinator, explores what it means to have a big heart and how to grow one with episodes focused on identity, friendship, and standing up for others.

Our newest episode is a special fictional episode set in our imaginary world, the Land of Qook-a-Lackas. It’s called “Cultivating Sweet Kindness,” and it’s about how one small act of kindness can spread BIG ripples through a whole community. It’s on our websiteApple PodcastsSpotify, or wherever you listen!
