20 Years

of the DECA Program

Welcome to the Devereux Center for Resilient Children (DCRC)!

Our mission is to promote social and emotional development, foster resilience, and build skills for school and life success in children birth through school-age, as well as to promote the resilience of the adults who care for them. We accomplish this by doing research and producing resources for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and adults. And our partnership with Aperture Education brings social and emotional learning and resilience to school-age children.

Why Resilience?

Resilience and Social-Emotional Health Logic Model

In early childhood, a child’s resilience and social and emotional health are directly influenced by the culture of the early childhood program they attend and the culture of their home. An early childhood program whose mission, values, policies and leadership support resilience-building cultures can promote child resilience in a number of ways.
