A Joyful Way to Listen and Learn
Little Kids, Big Hearts is Big Heart World’s podcast — and we hope it will help educators like you to introduce big ideas in social and emotional learning to your students. In each episode, the host (an early childhood educator and social-emotional coordinator in New York City), talks with children about different topics — from making friends to resolving conflicts — while going on an imaginary adventure together. You can listen on Apple, Spotify, or stream the episodes from this web page. For each episode, we provide a discussion guide in English and Spanish to fuel classroom conversations.
