For children to benefit from the Sanford Harmony Program©, it is imperative that the whole school adopts a philosophy that promotes positive peer relationships. By focusing on the importance of bringing boys and girls together, a whole-school approach can provide invaluable opportunities for positive interactions.
The Sanford Teacher’s Lounge© is an online community of teachers coming together for training, ongoing professional development, and networking. In this space, teachers engage with concepts driving the Sanford Harmony Program©:
- Breaking stereotypes and prejudices
- Fostering positive social relations
- Improving communication
Home-school connections encourage parents to think about how their child’s peer experiences lay the foundation for harmonious relationships and success in school and beyond. Teachers help parents reinforce the lessons of the Sanford Harmony Program© by providing parents with tools and information to promote positive communication and relationship skills.
