Worry Woo Social Emotional Learning Program

Worry Woo is a Social Emotional Learning program that personifies emotions, giving younger children the ability to learn about feelings and practise talking about them in a manner that is relatable to them. By offering children the tools to recognize and verbalize their feelings, we are empowering them to gain control of their own emotions and develop strength in empathy, self respect and resolution.
