The program blends character development, life skills, academic learning, and outdoor experiences into a comprehensive program geared to help students successfully handle the complexities of contemporary society, reinforce social skills, critical and creative thinking, ethical decision making, conflict resolution, and build their self-esteem.

The 8 core character traits promoted in this Program are: 1) Respect, 2) Responsibility, 3) Honesty/Trust, 4) Caring/Fairness, 5) Perseverance, 6) Self-Discipline, 7) Courage, and 8) Citizenship.

The Early Childhood program (Ages 3 and 4). The years before a child reaches kindergarten are among the most critical in his or her life to influence learning. Children ages 3 and 4 have a unique and fun opportunity to learn more about character traits, life skills and cognitive, emotional and social skills through an Early Childhood program developed by Learning for Life.

Our Early Childhood program consists of a Teacher’s Guide with 58 lesson plans including topics: Sharing, I am Special, I can Listen, Being Brave and Healthy Eating. Lessons are based on the eight character traits, life skills and focus on the cognitive, emotional and social skills development. Each lesson plan also includes a “Home/Family Activity Worksheet which teachers send to the student’s parent/guardian as an extension activity to reinforce the lesson plan in the home environment. To enhance the vocabulary development, listening skills, and understanding the purpose of the printed word; a children’s book, Wonderfully Made Under My Bed by Janice Bloom is included.

• Also included in the program is a “Parent’s Guide to Abuse”, a DVD called “Play It Safe” which features ventriloquist Ronn Lucas and his friends.
