Educators Are Recognized for Supporting Play for Peace

We are happy to share that we just completed our Phase 2 project with Kikori Play for Peace in partnership with Kikori worked on developing age appropriate variations for the activities that were on the Kikori platform. This phase of the project which began in July was actually a continuation of a process that began in early 2022 with uploading over 250 activities to the Kikori platform. This was a significant step forward as it gave educators and students greater accessibility to social emotional learning activities which were adapted to the developmental needs of each age group.  Each month we created and edited over 150 age variations of activities which was quite a feat.
