What We Do

By including animals in Two by Two®'s hands-on, thought-provoking social-emotional learning instruction, children's HEARTS are captured and learning takes root!

My class has completed the Two by Two Kindhearted Kids Program. What a great experience! The students learned so much about being a Kindhearted Kid. They became more responsible, more empathetic and have a better understanding of the golden rule! They absolutely loved having their own pets and several shared pictures and stories about what they were doing with them at home.

Core Values

Two by Two®'s eight core values - Fairness, Kindness, Respect, Responsibility, Empathy, Cooperation, Perseverance, and Citizenship - were carefully selected based on 21st Century education standards, specifically the skills children need to succeed in work, school, and life.  Animal mascots represent each core value, which were determined according to Native American Legends.   The mascots help focus attention, break down barriers, and spark fun and imaginative play. Two by Two Character Development weaves these core values throughout the many social-emotional programs offered to schools, out-of-school and home settings.
