Princeton School Superintendent says:"Every year, we send all of our fourth-graders to the Kidsbridge Tolerance Center because we realize that reinforcing social emotional skills at early ages is the way to go. Kidsbridge is one of our favorite bullying prevention/diversity appreciation programs, because it is “evidence-based” for attitude improvements in empathy, empowerment, moral reasoning, and stereotype awareness. The social emotional skill foundation training our students gain at Kidsbridge are the foundation to become caring and respectful human beings." — Steve Cochrane, Princeton Schools Superintendent
