Additional information

We collaborate with educators and families to understand the child and to support the child in the classroom and at home. We reflect on teaching practices, routines, curriculum, and the environment to promote well-being, healthy development, and learning. We share articles, handouts, and resources, and help with referrals for specialized services.

Our work is strengths-based and grounded in respect of the cultural norms practiced within each center and family.
