Placing Emotional Intelligence at the Heart of the Everyday Early Learning Experience

Get Started




The ECL Difference

Unlike any other traditional curriculum library, the ECSEL Curriculum Library is a unique curated collection of engaging, creative, and fun STEAM-based lessons and activities with the ECSEL (Emotional Cognitive and Social Early Learning) approach and philosophy at the heart of each one. The first of its kind, the ECSEL Curriculum Library provides unlimited opportunities to infuse emotional, cognitive, and social learning into each and every day’s learning experience. The ECSEL philosophy is designed to be woven seamlessly into any existing curriculum or program. We developed the ECSEL Curriculum Library—to help educators jumpstart this integration, and begin having important conversations with children about emotions during any part of their day.

A Curriculum Library with Emotion at the Center of Every Lesson

The ECSEL Curriculum Library is a digital resource for early childhood educators and families to use with children from 0-5. Educators and families will enroll in a subscription program that will give them access to an ever-growing collection of activities many of which will utilize Housman Institute’s ECSEL tools. The ECSEL Curriculum Library (ECL) is a destination for teachers and families to find ECSEL-integrated curriculum activities that have been designed with an emergent mindset. Our flexible, easy-to-use lesson plans can serve as just-in-time support for lesson planning or used to build an entire yearly curriculum. Our lessons are designed at developmental levels from 0-5, the optimum window for brain development and growth.


Easily Integrate STEAM Learning with Key Social and Emotional Understanding

Each activity incorporates ECSEL language, tools, and/or techniques and includes easy-to-find materials lists, step-by-step instruction, ECSEL prompts to support children in learning about emotions, ways to extend children’s thinking, and desired Social and Emotional learning goals that are all CASEL-aligned and meet our ECSELent industry-unique ECSEL Standards.  With a focus on STEAM-oriented activities, all of our lesson plans are centered on fostering the building blocks of  Emotional Intelligence, Empathy and Self-Regulation.
