Learning Care Group and Sprout Celebrate Children’s Kindness at Schools Nationwide

Education experts from Learning Care Group and Sprout have teamed to find ways to engage children in opportunities to develop an understanding of empathy — through teachable moments, by acknowledging children’s good deeds and in other ways. Each school has pledged to contribute a certain number of kind acts — collectively, as well as individually. These can include something as simple as giving a hug, getting a towel to help clean up a spill or sharing a box of crayons with a friend. Kind acts are being tracked and highlighted with Kindness Meters at each school, where children can see how each individual action adds up to a kinder school overall.


Sprout launched its Kindness Counts campaign in August 2011 and hopes to ultimately record one million acts of kindness from families across the country.
