The children are really responding to the strategies and the tools provided. They have learned how to use these strategies and are doing them on their own when upset. The lesson guide is excellent for guiding teachers and easy to implement in the classroom.
Great product! It came to me at a time that I was searching for something exciting to add to a ‘trauma’ training for teachers. It’s nice to add to ‘the behavioral toolbox’ with such wonderful materials that will be useful in the classroom.
The Calming Kit has been extremely effective in our preschool classrooms. The children are learning to manage their behaviors and use the tools taught from the Calming Kit.

Impacts and Outcomes
All types of early childhood programs across the country have successfully implemented The Calming Kit with noticeable, measureable results. The Calming Kit has been proven to reduce conflicts in the classroom – especially during frequent and challenging transition times – decreasing instances of teacher interventions and office referrals.
Educators report spending less time pivoting and correcting, and more time individualizing instruction and building relationships with the children in their care. Parents and families report a more natural, seamless way to teach social emotional skills and manage emotions in the home. Children using The Calming Kit are more prepared to learn and reach their full potential each day.
Through The Calming Kit, The Discovery Source supports each and every child’s social emotional development as a foundation for future success.
Learning about feelings and emotions, and how to identify and manage them, is a critical component of social emotional development that begins early and continues on throughout a child’s academic career and later, their adult life. When children learn to understand and self-regulate their emotions positively, they lower feelings of stress and anxiety, feel more safe and supported, engage more productively with peers and friends, and are ultimately better prepared to learn.
