New Hampshire Pyramid Model

Children need positive relationships, and for over 20 years, The Pyramid Model has worked to support social and emotional development in early childhood classrooms. Through evidence-based research, innovative techniques, and global reach, we empower children, birth to 5 years, to succeed in school and life.

In 2017 New Hampshire became the 28th Pyramid Model State. With funding support from the Endowment for Health, a State Leadership Team (SLT) was established with NH leaders from public and private organizations concerned with the social-emotional development of young children and their families. PTAN Project Director, Joan Izen serves as the SLT Meeting Facilitator.

PTAN is a grant-funded statewide technical assistance and training network that promotes quality, developmentally appropriate and culturally competent early childhood education and special education programs in New Hampshire.

The PTAN Child Care Inclusion Project provides FREE (grant-funded) services to NH child care teachers and directors to support their successful inclusion and retention of children with challenging behaviors and other special needs. Early childhood inclusion embodies the values, policies, and practices that support the right of every infant and young child to participate in a broad range of activities and contexts as full members of families, communities, and society regardless of ability.
