This article provides a compilation of 12 characteristics of resilient young children (Table 1) drawn from research, followed by nine global classroom intervention categories (Table 2) found to be effective in supporting students in developing resilience. In this article, the analysis of resilience research is presented to provide educators with high-quality strategies designed to build resilience in early childhood populations. These characteristics and interventions are the result of literature findings designed to enhance an educator's skill set in developing resilience in young children.
