Primary SEL Programming

The Primary SEL Program is designed for students ages 5-12. It includes a comprehensive curriculum with 30 hours of activities to choose from as well as Picture Books and Drawing and Activity Books to reinforce key SEL concepts in the day-to-day and bridge important conversations that promote student success with the home environment.

Captains & Poets’ curriculum is directly aligned to CASEL’s 5 competencies which are designed to “educate the heart and inspire the mind.” The Primary SEL Curriculum includes an Introductory Module to set out key concepts, and an Extension Module including further SEL and Identity related concepts.

On the Stage

Kick off your Captains & Poets program with an inspiring talk that sets your implementation up for success! Our Keynote Speakers are experts in our program and model authentic self-leadership and the strength that is found in vulnerability. They take an interactive approach to bring key concepts to life in relatable ways and help create a more safe and inclusive space to explore the Captain and Poet in everyone. We will collaborate with you to design a session that engages staff, students and/or parents and aligns to school priorities and messaging.
