Second Step


The Second Step

The CUSD preschool staff is excited to add The Second Step early learning program curriculum  to our afternoon classes.  The Second Step early learning program is designed to promote young children’s readiness skills for school and life by building their social-emotional competence and self-regulation skills. The program is based on research that connects the development of social-emotional competence and self-regulation skills to success in school and life.

The program is taught through a variety of learning strategies:

  • Puppet Scripts
  • Story and Discussion
  • Skills Practices
  • Songs
  • Brain Builder Games
  • Visual Aids
  • Home Link Activities
