Social and Emotional
Collected here are all of the social and emotional resources we have gathered, both for parents and children. Perhaps you want to ensure that your child has that extra boost they need with their social skills, this is the place to find that information. Many resources may play off of each other, meaning that a video from ECLIPSE or another website might explain a technique that you as a parent can implement in day-to-day activities with your child; or perhaps one resource explains the method in one respect and then showing it in action in another video or activity.
The Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning (CSEFEL) is focused on promoting the social emotional development and school readiness of young children birth to age 5. CSEFEL is a national resource center funded by the Office of Head Start and Child Care Bureau for disseminating research and evidence-based practices to early childhood programs across the country.

"Too Small to Fail, an initiative of the Clinton Foundation, is leading a public awareness and action campaign to promote the importance of early brain and language development and to empower parents with tools to talk, read, and sing with their young children from birth. Today, almost 60 percent of children in the United States start kindergarten unprepared, lagging behind their peers in critical language and reading skills. Through partnerships with pediatricians, hospitals, faith-based leaders, community based organizations, businesses, entertainment industry leaders, and others, Too Small to Fail is meeting parents where they are to help them prepare their children for success in school and beyond. Whether at the pediatrician's office or the playground, Too Small to Fail aims to make small moments big by creating opportunities for meaningful interactions anytime, anywhere."
