Global Gamers

Global Gamers is a social-emotional learning program where children play games from around the world and learn about the culture, language and geography of each country. Global Gamers curriculum celebrates and embraces diversity and promotes individual and community wellbeing.

Why Global Gamers

Global Gamers creates a safe space where diversity is celebrated and embraced.

In addition to playing new games and having fun, children: 

  • Develop cultural awareness

  • Celebrate differences and similarities

  • Build respect and empathy for other people

  • Develop a sense of being part of a global community


​Through play, children have the opportunity to:

  • Learn something new and at their own pace

  • Make mistakes and not give up

  • Embrace challenges

  • Practice the power of “yet”

  • Work collaboratively and learn from each other
