Vancouver Early Years Partnership Develops New SEL Matters Website

Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is a critical component to the healthy development of young children – impacting how we process emotions, achieve goals, maintain positive relationships and make responsible decisions in our lives.

The Vancouver Early Years Partnership developed the new SEL Matters website to offer early years providers and parents/caregivers a set of clear, consistent messages about the importance of SEL. It refines the key research arguments into easy-to-use messages and provides a range of downloadable resources, including fact sheets, posters, and links to evidence.
