Since 2005, Two by Two has developed research-based, character education curricula based on 21st Century education standards - the skills children need to succeed in work, school and life. Character education is a national movement creating schools and communities that foster ethical, responsible and caring young people by modeling and teaching good character through emphasis on universal values.
Two by Two is committed to developing responsible citizens of strong character who care for, respect and appreciate people, animals and the environment.
“Two by Two’s curriculum is unique because it involves students physically, emotionally, socially, and academically. Both cognitive and affective learning takes place. We love the program!” LINDA FRIEDMAN Principal at Walnut Street School, Uniondale, NY “If you’re going to have a lasting impact in the area of character education where students learn how to care for all living creatures, you have to start with a child’s heart, and that’s what this program does.” DAN RATCLIFF Principal at Harlan Elementary, Oelwein, IA “What an amazing opportunity we are giving our children through the Two by Two Curriculums. It is teaching them the EXACT skills that future employers are looking for when hiring responsible staff. They are the skills that are not tested on a standardized test or skills that you can learn from a textbook. They are the skills that need to be taught, coached and practiced in real life situations to help our students make a positive impact on their communities.” SARAH WEBER Table Mound 4th Grade Teacher “My daughter has always loved animals and has been kind-natured and empathetic. But I have seen a new level of understanding the need of being responsible, not only to a pet, but for her actions and following through on commitments.” PARENT Bryant School “Two by Two’s curriculum is unique because it involves students physically, emotionally, socially, and academically. Both cognitive and affective learning takes place. We love the program!”

“The Two by Two Kindhearted Kids Program is so much more than a cute program about pets. The way this program weaves character education into highly motivating lessons is masterful. My second graders will carry these life lessons they have learned from Two by Two outside the classroom into their lives.”
