WI Pyramid Model



The Wisconsin Pyramid Model is a framework for implementing a culturally responsive and equitable multi-leveled system of supports designed to enhance social and emotional competence of young children, promote the development of program policies and practices, and provide early care and education providers with practice-based coaching to ensure that evidence-based practices are integrated and used with fidelity.

The Pyramid Model framework focuses on:

  • prevention of behavior that challenges by intentionally supporting nurturing and responsive relationships, 
  • creating high-quality learning environments, 
  • teaching and supporting the practice of key social and emotional skills, and 
  • designing collaborative systems to support caregivers to employ highly individualized supports when children need them.
