January 28, 2018 Coaching & Mentoring Intended to promote and support awareness and strengthening of individuals’ and programs’ learning processes and professional practices, Trying Together uses a relationship-based mentoring model that is customizable to meet individual needs and enhance identified goals and interests. Everyday Interactions Matter One model Trying Together uses 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.
