Welcome to Sanford Harmony, a social-emotional teaching program that cultivates healthy relationships between children. Our goal is to implement specialized teaching strategies into classroom activities in an effort to develop children into tolerant, compassionate, and caring adults.
Harmony is designed to build healthy relationships among children by having them engage in activities that promote understanding and respect.
Through the power of positive communication and teamwork, Harmomy empowers children to prevent teasing, bullying and disruptive behavior.
Harmony support the safety, well-being, and success of all children by developing trust, empathy and social-emotional competencies.
Kudos to the creators of the Harmony curriculum for getting it right! It is working for us. We are grateful for your willingness to respond to our needs!

National University was selected in 2014 to disseminate Sanford Harmony, a program created from the vision of philanthropist T. Denny Sanford. The program is designed to develop today’s youth into respectful, compassionate, and caring adults for the future by integrating the evidence-based strategies of Meet Up/Buddy Up along with grade-level lessons and activities into their learning environments.
Sanford Harmony has helped over 17,000 organizations to develop strategies that benefit children socially, emotionally, and educationally and is currently implemented in over 140,000 classrooms nationwide.
