NC Preschool Pyramid Model (formerly Social Emotional Foundations of Early Learning-SEFEL)
This project is designed to help improve child outcomes for preschool children with disabilities and to increase opportunities for instruction in the least restrictive environment (LRE). Based on the preschool pyramid model, developed by the Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning, this tiered framework of evidence-based practices promotes healthy social-emotional development for ALL children birth through 5 years of age.
The Preschool Pyramid Model (PPM) promotes strategies to help teaching staff build positive relationships with and among children by creating supportive learning environments, teaching children to understand and express their emotions, and use problem solving skills. The PPM aligns with school-age Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS).
The Network offers training on the pyramid model, including training for coaches. For more information visit NCPPM Resources.
