Event description

Description

The Safe and Sound Schools Conference is a day of collaboration and study of Emotionally Responsive Practice. This conference is for elementary schools and early childhood programs that want to make sure that teachers, social workers and administrators have a deep understanding of child development, social and emotional foundations for learning, parent engagement, and mastery of supportive techniques for building a safe and empathic school community.

Community of Safe and Sound Schools Initiative

What are Safe and Sound Schools?

Safe and Sound Schools are elementary schools and early childhood programs that use the work of Emotionally Responsive Practice at Bank Street to inform their interactions, routines and curriculum. Safe and Sound Schools give all staff members in the preschool or elementary school building a deep understanding of child development and social and emotional foundations for learning, as well as supportive techniques for building an empathic school community where children feel safe and connected.

Who Can Become a Safe and Sound School?

Elementary Schools, Head Start Programs, and Child Care Centers who want to be connected to ERP at Bank Street, want an opportunity for ongoing professional development and support, and want to connect to other schools who use Emotionally Responsive Practice can join Our Community of Safe and Sound Schools.

In order to support the work, each program pays a membership fee for the school year. See ticket information for membership fees.

Our Safe and Sound School Community is available to schools in New York City as well as schools across the country. NYC public schools can access our Promoting Safe and Supportive Schools requirements contract.

Out of town members who come to NYC for the conference and stay for the long week end can visit a school that practices ERP on Monday.

Why Safe and Sound Schools?

Research tells us that adverse childhood experiences are common across the income spectrum, and can heighten risk for physical and mental health problems as children grow up, in addition to creating social, emotional and learning issues while they are small. A safe, empathic, engaging school environment can act to diminish stress, nurture the developing brain and become a protective factor for the hundreds of children who attend each year.
