Last May, Dr. Housman spoke at Harvard University's China Education Symposium on how to effectively promote early learning from birth and how the program she developed, begin to...ECSEL, strengthens foundational emotional, cognitive and social competencies for children's lifelong learning, success and well-being.

At Housman Institute, we believe our role is to nurture the social, emotional, and cognitive well-being of all students and educators without bias. It is critical that every child feel recognized and validated from their earliest days—to understand that their voice matters, regardless of background or experience and is being heard. We listen to, respect and support the needs of our educators as we recognize their critical role in a child's emotional growth and development. Together we need to begin the important work to help all our children and educators, as we move toward a more equitable environment for early learning, setting the stage for the building blocks of empathy and conflict resolution, and a more equitable future for us all.
