Coaching & Mentoring

Intended to promote and support awareness and strengthening of individuals’ and programs’ learning processes and professional practices, the mentoring model we have created is relationship-based and customized to meet individual needs as well as enhance identified goals and interests.

One model we use to coach early childhood professionals is Everyday Interactions Matter (EIM), the early childhood arm of Simple Interactions Matter (SIM). A strengths-based approach to supporting child- and youth-serving professionals in learning and growing from their own practice, EIM focuses on the everyday interactions between adults and children. With an emphasis on “finding the deep and simple in quality early childhood education”, we incorporate the EIM philosophy into our development offerings and connect it to our work with families.
