Supporting Evidence

The Kimochis® Educator’s Tool Kit is a universal, school-based, social and emotional learning program designed to give children the knowledge, skills, and attitudes they need to recognize and manage their emotions, demonstrate caring and concern for others, establish positive relationships, make responsible decisions, and handle challenging situations constructively.

These skills have been identified by leading researchers in the field of social and emotional learning as necessary for school success, academic achievement, positive social relationships, and the development of emotional competence.

The Kimochis curriculum incorporates innovative, fun, and exciting lessons and activities that were developed to teach children how to manage challenging social situations with skill, character, and confidence.

This overview summarizes the research that supports the design and lesson components of the Kimochis program.
