Lessons for Life

Persona Dolls

Given their strong tendency to internalize, young children are extremely vulnerable to bias and stereotypes. And that vulnerability can turn into bias-based attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors that last a lifetime. With the assistance of our early childhood curriculum, teachers can address potential issues before they become lasting problems.

The Persona Doll curriculum:

  • Supports the growth of social-emotional skills in young children
  • Provides positive representations, reinforcing healthy identity development and respect across differences
  • Effectively develops children’s innate empathy skills
  • Help facilitate age-appropriate conversations around race, gender, ability and neurodiversity, class, family structures, and more.
