Welcome!

Open Circle provides an evidence-based social and emotional learning (SEL) program for Kindergarten through Grade 5. We specialize in delivering engaging and interactive professional development that combines theory, research and the practical experience of educators.

Registration is still open for the 2014-2015 school year! Our whole school approach includes programming for your entire school community. Register now for our Specialist & Support Staff Workshop, Administrator Workshop, and more!

Refer a School - Receive a FREE set of children's books for your library!

Help bring social and emotional learning to more students and teachers! If you are an Open Circle school and you refer us to a school that is not currently implementing Open Circle, you can receive a free set of children's books from our book list - a $100 value! The books will cover a range of ages and will include new books with multicultural themes.

To participate, email us at info@open-circle.org with names and contact information for schools you would like to refer. Thank you for helping to spread the word about Open Circle!
