Early Childhood Program

Emotions With Kiwi

The Let’s Learn About Emotions with KIWI program brings social-emotional learning together with the development of self-regulation of eight basic emotions. These very specific skills lay a firm foundation for future character development and the acquisition of social-emotional academic skills.

Let’s Learn about Emotions with Kiwi started with the need for a program that would help young children recognize, name, and understand emotions in learning self-regulation skills and building self-awareness and awareness of others. This program is based on the work of Dr. Robert Plutchik's Psychoevolutionary Theory of Basic Emotions. His theory suggests that there are 8 basic emotions with which every human is wired through his or her DNA. From these 8 basic emotions, many "shades" of these emotions have been identified.
