This article aims to show how one nonprofit
agency in Pennsylvania, USA, integrated
restorative principles and processes
into an early education and parenting initiative.
This resulted in positive social, emotional
and cognitive outcomes for young
children and gave them a great foundation
for success in school and in life. It also
provided an opportunity for the agency’s
staff to strengthen their knowledge and
understanding of restorative concepts and
practices, enabling them to engage more
effectively as restorative leaders. (excerpt)
