Social Emotional

pyramid plusWith support from the Colorado Health Foundation,  the Rural Resort Region North-Eastern (RRR-NE) Early Childhood Council is a Pyramid Plus Approach Implementation Community.  The RRR-NE Early Childhood Council is a partnership between Summit and Grand Counties.  Both counties have active Pyramid Plus Leadership Teams and are conducting Pyramid Plus Approach trainings.

The Pyramid Plus Center works to improve the social and emotional competence and inclusion of young children through the Pyramid Plus Approach: embedded inclusion practices along the entire developmental continuum (Birth – 5 years) within the Pyramid Model framework. This approach builds on the work of the Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning (CSEFEL), the Technical Assistance Center on Social Emotional Interventions (TACSEI), and the SpecialQuest Approach and materials.

The goal of the Pyramid Plus Center is to increase of these evidence-based, early childhood social emotional and inclusive practices in early care and education settings, including family child care and in-home providers.  For more information about the Colorado Pyramid Plus Center please visit:  http://www.pyramidplus.org
