What are Educators Saying

“The Sanford Harmony Program is an outstanding way of engaging Kindergarten students in developing age appropriate social-emotional and problem solving skills. Students sing and dance to daily songs from the program that I myself regularly participate in with the children. Daily structured conversations, Meet Up and Buddy Up Activities are the perfect combination for enabling primary students to engage and excel in strategies needed in daily life. I absolutely love the program!”
Darren T. Raymar, Principal
"The Sanford Harmony Program has helped my students understand the importance of treating each other in a respectful way and has changed the way they interact with one another. The kids look forward to starting each day with Sanford Harmony and it’s wonderful to see the success of the program firsthand."
Patty Brady, Teacher, Grade 4
"Our students realize that they will be more successful when they work together thanks to the Harmony Program."
Liz Rodriguez, Guidance Counselor
"The Sanford Harmony Program provided our young learners with the opportunity to discuss key elements of character education utilizing age appropriate resources. Children were intrigued by the literature used and especially the manner in which they could freely interact with each other through discussions of kindness, respect and concern for others. Our teachers, also found the program to be unique in design and materials are aligned to many pieces of literature, thus allowing curriculum integration and easy planning. We are proud of our accomplishments using this dynamic program, as it certainly provides a modern approach to teaching the pillars of character education."

“I love, love, love this program! I even used some of the strategies at home with my daughters! Here is what some of my students have to say about Stanford Harmony:

I made new friends because of this program and I was new to the school. - Ali
It taught us teamwork. - Luis
We found new friends to add to old friends. - Makayla
We don't need to be alone anymore. - Danton
It made all of us have kind hearts. - Layla
I didn't know Ali had funny stuff to say before the program. - Marco
It makes fewer bullies. - Evan
I didn't know Julia and I had things in common before. - Carla

I agree with all of the above! We are such a tight team now! Fewer problems mean more teaching!”

Alycia Vincent, Teacher, Grade 1
"The tools of Sanford Harmony really are a tangible approach to getting our students better in touch with their feelings. We are so appreciative of Sanford Harmony. We will be working on Buddy Up, Lessons and Games in the coming weeks. Thank you for such great tools and guidance."
Amanda Welles, Teacher Grade 3
“I have seen my students grow in many ways. Our morning meet-up has become a special time that the students and I both look forward to. Our first goals were to be kind to one another and to be good listeners. The kids got good at saying, ‘Wow you're being kind!’ or 'You're not being a good listener!’ This happened throughout the day.”
Kellie G., Teacher, Grade 1
“I have noticed my students being more in tune with their feelings and the feelings of their peers. They use the language in their conversations even at lunch when they are not in the classroom.”
Kim K., Teacher, Grade 2
