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.

DCRC is always interested in pursuing partnerships with universities, state, and local agencies and individuals who are planning to embark on research projects involving the promotion of social and emotional health and resilience of children.
