A Parent Is A Child's First Teacher

The parenting program is designed to create an impactful connection and harmonious relationship with your child. We focus on the mind, body, and soul connection, and teach techniques to help better understand the emotions of both you and your child.

Early Care Educators 

Our program focuses on developing early care educators and professionals who work with young children. Through this program, our participants will learn how to recognize and understand emotions in themselves and in others, and to better manage and express their own emotions. Our program includes instructional tools, activities, and exercises that facilitate the development of self-awareness, self-regulation, and empathy. Ultimately, our goal is to give early care educators the skills and knowledge to help young children develop socially and emotionally.
