with mastery in the proven five essential components of reading: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Our programs are in 12 states, reaching over 15,000 children a year in pre-kindergarten, childcare, transitional/high five kindergarten, and kindergarten through grade 3.
“This innovative teacher coaching model supports children’s social-emotional development and significantly contributes to closing the opportunity and school readiness gaps at kindergarten entry.”
SEEDS serves as a great foundation in any program. It has a great emphasis on building quality relationships with the children. Teachers are introduced to many useful techniques that they are able to use throughout the day. SEEDS shows everyone how to be change agents and I am thankful to be a part of it.
As with all educators, I live for the, “ah-ha moments,” when a little spark of knowledge is suddenly lit up within students. I enjoy the training received in SEEDS because it helps me further develop my skills to provide the “ah-ha moments.” SEEDS is a vital tool for both experienced and new teachers.
The SEEDS framework provides a foundation for learning. I find the parallel process of both adult and child learning to be highly effective in creating best practice habits, influences new knowledge and developing skills. Taking a SEEDS balanced approach promotes growth and respect for human dignity.
We love SEEDS!! The positive impact we have seen on early literacy skills in our classroom implementing strategies with fidelity is huge! Kate, Dana, and the team are amazing and have been beyond supportive throughout our learning!
