The Teaching Pyramid Model for Supporting Social and Emotional Competence is a conceptual framework of evidence-based practices for children birth through five and their caregivers developed by two national, federally-funded research and training centers. In Maryland, SEFEL is being implemented in a variety of early childhood settings, including early care and education and elementary schools, through a multi-agency effort led by the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) Division of Early Childhood Development. The SEFEL Website provides easy access to an extensive online library of SEFEL resources for families, teachers & caregivers, and trainers & coaches.
