Joyful Together is an evidence-based program that limits toxic stress in children while enhancing childhood resiliency and adding positive childhood experiences. Joyful Together uses play to enhance relational health through everyday moments between children and early childhood care and education professionals. This program equips early childhood educators and administrators with tools to implement the model into routines within early childhood education centers and classrooms. In this Newsletter we explore Joyful Together Early Care Education- currently funded by Starting Point and the J.M. & H.W. Stielau Foundation.
