In 2012, Olive Crest Academy brought the Kimochis social -emotional learning program to our school.  It has been a huge success and the children are learning how to express and manage their feelings in effective ways...

Here is the description of the program..


What are Kimochis?

Kimochi (KEY.MO.CHEE) means “feeling” in Japanese.

Kimochis® are an engaging and effective way to introduce the fourth “R”—reading, writing, arithmetic, and RELATIONSHIPS—into a child’s life.


The Kimochis® Educator’s Tool Kit is a universal, school-based, Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) program designed to give children the knowledge, skills and attitudes they need to recognize and manage their emotions, demonstrate caring and concern for others, establish positive relationships, make responsible decisions, and handle challenging situations constructively. These skills have been identified by leading researchers in the field of social and emotional learning as necessary for school success, academic achievement, positive social relationships and the development of emotional competence. The Kimochis® curriculum incorporates innovative and fun activities developed to teach children how to manage challenging social situations with skill, character and confidence.
