Curriculum

Our curriculum

Thoughtfully created for young learners

Our curriculum facilitates social-emotional learning and acquiring mental health knowledge and skills that will serve children and youth both in and out of the classroom. Fledge may assist children in learning about and/or acquiring skills to increase awareness of their emotions, understand and consider different ways of coping with challenging situations, interactions, and emotions, apply their knowledge and understanding of mental health concepts, gain skills for focusing attention, and practice mindfulness.

How it works

Four key areas of growth

To facilitate this learning, the Fledge curriculum covers four subject areas for wide-ranging understanding of mental wellbeing:

  • Emotional Regulation

    Students learn how we can communicate and interact with others effectively. They practice strategies for self and co-regulation, and setting boundaries for healthy relationships.

  • Stress & Anxiety

    Students learn information about our stress and anxiety responses and practice strategies to use to regulate our nervous systems and manage the effects of anxiety.

  • Focus & Attention

    Students learn how we can be present, focus, and pay attention to ourselves and our environment. They practice strategies for mindfulness, and calming the body and mind to be able to focus.

  • Social Interactions

    Students learn information on how we can communicate and interact with others effectively. They practice strategies for self and co-regulation, and setting boundaries for healthy relationships.

Three core categories

Within each subject area, there are 5 lessons or exercises for each category: Body, Breathe, & Brain.

  • Body

    activities include strategies that relate to the body. This could look like a physical movement exercise, yoga pose, or anything that draws upon any of our body’s 5 senses.
