What Is It?

SEEDS of Learning is a set of Early Childhood Professional Development frameworks. SEEDS of 3-5 Learning uses a Train-the-Trainer model and coaching support that teachers need to create supportive, caring, and productive interactions with children.

This framework shows caregivers how to:

  • Increase outcomes for children using evidence-based best practices
  • Increase teacher efficacy through a research-based skill development cycle
  • Strengthen community and learning through quality interactions

Who Is It For?

This framework is designed for caregivers and educators who work in settings serving children 3 to 6 years of age.

Potential SEEDS of Learning participants often have experience in education, psychology, special education, and/or early childhood education.

Currently, SEEDS is implemented in various programs, including Head Start, state preschool programs, private centers, and kindergarten programs nationwide.

How It Works

Teaching staff is trained in the SEEDS model with an external or internal CARES coach.
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.

“What I loved about the SEEDS sessions was that I could put into motion what I had learned immediately.”
