Teachers, we know you’re the real difference-makers. You’re in a unique position to shape children’s long-term school and life success.
When you walk into a Tools preschool, you see a world of intentional make-believe play. Tools preschoolers are busy building the foundational skills they’ll need for school and life. And they build these skills in the most age-appropriate way.
Every Tools activity builds foundational self-regulation and social skills while targeting school readiness essentials like:
Don’t just take it from us—hear what Tools teachers have to say.
There is no other curriculum that can develop your students' minds like Tools of the Mind.
My favorite thing about Tools of the Mind is that students make enormous progress in writing, math, self-regulation and language. Tools students are ready to learn, they have better self-regulation skills, they're able to work well with each other and they love coming to school.
With Tools, I can meet my children at their level and build a strong learning foundation. Tools provides all the materials and strategies to build a successful classroom where ALL children can learn and succeed.
It’s a wonderful way of teaching and I see way more growth with Tools than previous curriculums. Tools of the Mind is AMAZING! I’d prefer to work in a Tools classroom than any other.
As a teacher with over 30 years of teaching experience, my last ten years teaching Tools of the Mind have by far been the best! Observing the progress that preschoolers make in this program is nothing short of amazing. With Tools, all learners are successful no matter their age or ability.
Tools has allowed me to feel less stressed when it comes to planning and prepping as the "work" is done by the students. They are so involved in prepping and creating their learning environments. Tools makes the children excited and happy to learn when they know they are in charge of what they do!

Because we’re based on neuroscience and Vygotskian theory, Tools is designed to meet every child where they are, no matter what their unique abilities.
Tools invites preschoolers to learn to play and play to learn, building the self-regulation and school readiness skills they’ll need for school and life. Through high-interest themes that teachers and children co-construct together, children are intrinsically motivated to learn, grow and thrive. This closes the achievement gap and makes learning accessible to all, no matter what.
Tools is the comprehensive early childhood program that develops every child’s self-regulation in every activity. Research shows that self-regulation is the biggest predictor of success in school and life.
