PEDALS program helps prepare young children socially and emotionally for kindergarten.

PEDALS is a partnership between the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York and the Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Foundation to work with preschool providers to:

  • Build kids’ social emotional skills, increasing kindergarten readiness

  • Identify those children with social emotional needs, make accommodations for those children in the classroom, and ensure they, and their families, are connected to appropriate supports

  • Increase teachers’ skills in supporting social emotional development and addressing problem behaviors

This partnership is in effect in all of our classrooms!
