Our Mission & Vision

At Housman Institute, we work to educate educators, parents, and the young children they nurture, teach and support, in order to promote the growth of emotional intelligence through the development of its underlying competencies and associated skills.

We strive to help all children from birth—irrespective of learning style or background—and the adults who love and care for them.

Our mission is to provide children from birth with the building blocks of emotional intelligence through the promotion, development, and understanding of emotional competencies, self-regulation, empathy, pro-social behaviors, and other critical emotional, cognitive and social early learning skills—laying the foundation for lifelong learning, mental health, well-being, and success for all children.

As educators and as a society, we are seeing an alarming rise in behavioral problems, bullying, stress, anxiety, low self-esteem, and lack of empathy. How we learn to express our emotions, manage our feelings, and deal with the emotions of others are key factors in learning, success, our growth as individuals, and the impact we have on others.”
