How It Works
An organization (like a childcare center or provider) selects staff to be trained in the SEEDS model.
The staff attends SEEDS training and receives coaching from an external SEEDS coach or an internal staff member with SEEDS Coaching certification.
The staff implements the SEEDS framework. Staff and children feel confident and capable.
