Mission Statement

We are a character education program for children from pre-k through late elementary. Our program is used to establish a firm foundation in which children develop strong civic values.


Characters of Character utilizes nine character traits to provide children an outlet for expression and learning. The characters and traits are: Behavior Bear, who teaches children that good behavior is a characteristic to portray at home, at school and at play; Do’er Duck, who teaches that persistence although difficult at times, is always the key to achieving your goals; Friendship Frog, who teaches that honesty is part of creating and maintaining a friendship, Healthy Hippo, who teaches that drugs are a bad influence and that being healthy entails maintaining an equally healthy mind and lifestyle; Manners Monkey, who teaches children that minding their manners can lead to successful friendships; Respectful Rabbit, who teaches that respect should be demonstrated towards all people, and emphasizes the old adage "Treat others how you yourself would wish to be treated", Responsible Rabbit, who teaches that being responsible is part of being a good friend, family member, and citizen in your community; Self-Esteem Elephant, who teaches that being proud of who you are creates a better self-image and work ethic; and finally, Warm-Hearted Walrus, who teaches that having a warm heart and being kind creates a better environment for yourself and others around you.
