107: Social and Emotional Skills with Peppy Pals

Season 7 – Wellbeing

Peppy Pals is the leading company within playful and digital experiences for children’s lifelong social and emotional learning (EQ/SEL). The company’s award-winning language free apps, books, movies, toys and activities are intended for children ages 2-9 years old and has proven effective for both homes and schools world-wide. Through fun and visual stories relatable for children, Peppy Pals has developed a unique way to spark conversations between children and grown-ups regarding important social and emotional abilities such as empathy, feelings, self-esteem, and problem solving.

In the world of Peppy Pals, children get to know five gender neutral animal characters. Just like in real life, each of the characters have their own unique personality, strengths and preferences that children can relate to depending on their own personality. Together, they learn to solve problems, cooperate and most importantly, learn how to see things from different perspectives.
