How It Works
Leaders select teaching staff to be trained in the SEEDS model. They also identify an external or internal SEEDS certified coach to support with skill development.
Staff attend SEEDS training. Sessions are intensive "deep dives" into the SEEDS of Learning framework, which is research and evidence-based.
Staff implement the SEEDS framework using a supportive skill development cycle. Children and adults feel confident and capable.
