Consultation to Teachers

Empowering your teachers with the tools to create a peaceful, cooperative play and learning environment.

Keep Your Classrooms on Track

What is the one thing most likely to derail all of the hard work your teachers put into preparing learning experiences at your school?

If you said disruptive or unwanted behaviors, you’re not alone. Early childhood professionals report that managing the behavior of a group of young children is arguably the most stressful part of their jobs. We are so excited to tell you that this doesn’t have to be the “norm” in your school!


You can spend less time managing behaviors and more time nurturing positive growth in your students.

Jamie is a valuable resource for our teachers and makes for an even better school environment for your children.

Preventing Problems Vs. Putting Out Fires

Why wait until you face unwanted behaviors to do something?

  • The “terrible twos” and “threenager” phases don’t have to be the norm
  • You can give kids lifelong skills for success, like the ability to tolerate being told “no”
