The Pyramid Model

The Pyramid Model creates an environment where EVERY child feels good about coming to school. The model consists of evidenced-based practices that help develop children’s social emotional skills. 

The model promotes building relationships between school and family to support the child together. The tiers promote skills for all to use that start with the whole classroom and builds to the children needed the most supports. It fosters friendships, social emotional skills, problem solving, self-regulation and anger management skills. 

ELCFV has partnered with Division of Early Learning and USF to provide this training locally to our centers and families. The Pyramid Model for Supporting Social Emotional Competence in Infants and Young Children (Pyramid Model) focuses on promoting positive outcomes for young children birth to five, reducing the use of inappropriate discipline practices, promoting family engagement, using data for decision-making, integrating early childhood and infant mental health consultation, and fostering inclusion.
