What our programs are saying...

"It is evident that the content of the S.E.E.D. Certification was created by someone who has lived experience working in a classroom with young children. All of the concepts speak directly to our work and what is needed in our field. It is rare to find a certification program that considers the unique challenges in early childhood education so completely." 

"I feel like Seed & Sew came into my life when I needed something to keep me in it after 30 years. Exploring all of what Alyssa & the Seed team have to offer has been a light in what was a dim tunnel. I have resources and connections now. I feel thoroughly supported."

"WOW! What an amazing seven hours. I am going back to watch at least the first three again! It is user friendly! NOT BUSY WORK and I love that. Great reflective questions."

Frequently Asked Questions

Reduce burnout, attract families and teachers, and create a positive environment where everyone thrives

Rather than pay once for your teachers to attend a conference only to return without the support to implement what they’ve learned, give your teachers the ongoing resources to dive deeper into the curriculum and make lasting change in their classrooms. Plus, new hires will be given access to the content all year long.
