Who Is It For?

Who Is It For?

This framework is designed for parents of infants and children up to age 5.


Potential SEEDS of Learning parents often have little to no experience in early childhood education and are seeking proven ways to support their children at home during everyday activities.



What Is It?

SEEDS of Learning is a set of Early Childhood Professional Development frameworks. SEEDS of Parenting uses a Train-the-Trainer model to guide parents in creating supportive, caring, and productive interactions. Through SEEDS Quality Interactions, we foster age appropriate development.


This framework shows very busy parents how to seamlessly integrate meaningful literacy-rich exchanges throughout the day.


Cost will vary by program.
