|Several years before our company was founded in February 2007 Marilyn Lewis had a vision and set out on a very specific mission to develop an "emotional literacy" program like no other. She used her many years of preschool/daycare ownership and operation to create an innovative, one-of-a-kind system that could be easily integrated into licensed childcare facilities and Head Start throughout the United States and Canada attended by preschool age children (ages 3-5). The focus of this system is to provide a generous incorporation of Emotional Literacy with an exciting and fun twist to this too often neglected area of child development. Since 2007 thousands of children have already experienced the system, and we have enjoyed enormous satisfaction and encouragement as a result of their joyful responses and ability to easily engage themselves.

We created our character driven EnDucate™ system to accomplish the goal of bringing the "language" of Emotional Literacy, and proudly state to you that we have done so, plus some. Our company's overall objective is to EnDucate™ preschool age children on a universal scale. Our learning system is the ONLY learning system of its kind that is Patented.
Our Learning System (which is easy to incorporate into any preschool program) includes a 2 Volume Curriculum (an 1,100+ page PRESCHOOL CURRICULUM was created from internationally accepted evidence-based research and many years of first-person-hands-on-experience), Emotion Activity Center (U.S. Patent No. 8,292,627) and all of the necessary components to be used in a childcare environment for preschoolers - it makes for a child-driven teaching/learning experience.
We welcome your visit to our site and encourage you to join us in the effort to get the word out, and better prepare our preschoolers for their futures as productive members of our ever growing and demanding society.
Our Primary Corporate Mission is to have our EnDucate™ Learning System in every Licensed Private Childcare center and Head Start classroom throughout the USA and Canada, at no cost to these facilities.
We have chosen the professional sports arena as a key element in making emotional literacy more palatable to children. There are many articles and studies supporting the close and important correlation between sports and emotions http://www.getthefive.com/articles/the-in-crowd/is-emotional-intelligence-required-for-sports-perf/. Our focus is laser like in that we target preschoolers who have not been tainted by internal or external prejudices regarding their emotions, which then are brought to the many activities they seek to become a part of as they grow.
The "core values" of a company always matters, thus each day we strive to earn your trust.
In our 10th year of serving children with this system we predict that 2017-18 should prove to be very exciting years!
"Affordable and enriching childcare has largely become a daily struggle for parents and providers, but we must not be deterred, the fates of our future leaders hang in the balance - we must fight the good fight, any thing less would be unacceptable."
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you lived. This is to have succeeded.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."
Theodore Roosevelt, "Citizenship in a Republic," speech at the Sorbonne, Paris (April 23, 1910)
