The Healthy Play (HP) curriculum is a character education, classroom management, violence prevention, and conflict resolution program that has impacted over 250,000 children, teachers, parents, and youth service professionals since 1992. HP has been primarily developed for use in the kindergarten through sixth grade classroom environment. Application of the curriculum is intended for both regular classes and for numerous special education class settings, including mainstreaming special needs students.
HP is an educational curriculum, which promotes students’ abilities to gain empathy and compassion for others, practice nurturance, achieve feelings of success and well being, and to manage or prevent intimidating, aggressive, or violent behaviors. The curriculum is intended to be used by students, teachers, school counselors, principals, teaching assistants, and playground monitoring staff.
