About

What is happening in Nevada?

Nevada TACSEI is a statewide initiative designed to create a sustainable, statewide system that promotes social emotional development in young children, using the Pyramid Model.

The Pyramid Model is a framework for intentionally supporting the social emotional foundations for early learning. It is a tiered prevention and intervention model designed to prevent and address children’s challenging behaviors. For more information, go to the Pyramid Model section of the website.

Nevada TACSEI’s Statewide Leadership Team is comprised of members from a variety of agencies, programs and services who are committed to supporting social emotional development and preventing challenging behavior.

  Mission Statement

Our mission is to collaborate with families, community partners, and policy makers to create a sustainable, statewide system that promotes social emotional development in young children, using the Pyramid Model.

Our Vision

Young children in Nevada will have stable and healthy relationships, be ready to learn, and successfully navigate their social environment. Families will be supported in nurturing their child’s social and emotional growth.

To achieve this mission and vision we have created a Master Cadre of experienced trainers, coaches and technical assistance providers for the Pyramid Model located throughout the state. The Master Cadre members provide training and can work directly with programs to support implementation of Pyramid Model practices.

Programs who commit to program-wide implementation of Pyramid Model practices can move through the Phases of Implementation and work toward Nevada TACSEI Model Demonstration Site status.

This website will house resources for Nevada TACSEI trainers, coaches and model demonstration site staff as well as serve as a communication tool for parents and the early childhood community. Browse this website to learn more about our vision, mission, leadership team, model demonstration sites and training opportunities.
