Reduce teacher turnover with the S.E.E.D. Certification®


Calling on her own experience as a teacher and director and the burnout she saw and lived, Seed & Sew founder Alyssa Blask Campbell, M.Ed., has collaborated with other experts in the ECE field to develop a comprehensive, practical certification program for childcare centers and home based care providers like yours.

What does it mean to be a S.E.E.D. Certified® school?

Despite the high demand for teachers in all age groups, we find that teachers are leaving the field in escalated numbers.

But what if teachers felt that their emotional needs were supported, and that they could teach alongside their colleagues with a unified approach?

By becoming certified as a School Excelling in Emotional Development (S.E.E.D.)®, you'll be supporting your teachers with the tools they need to respond to kid’s big emotions with self-awareness and self-regulation, creating a collaborative, inclusive environment in which teachers and tiny humans thrive. To become S.E.E.D. Certified®, every teacher at a school must complete the training program, resulting in a unified, consistent approach.

Yes! I want my school to be certified.

With the S.E.E.D. Certification®, your school will have...

Teachers who feel seen & supported.

A framework for emotional regulation for the adults and children.

Teachers and families working together in a unified approach.

Meet Alyssa

check An emotional development expert and the co-creator of the Collaborative Emotion Processing (CEP) method, Alyssa Blask Campbell is committed to helping parents and caregivers build emotional intelligence in their tiny humans.

Alyssa grew up in a village in the traditional sense, with grandparents down the street in a neighborhood where everyone knew each other’s name. Throughout her teens, she supported single and working moms, nannying all through college and beyond. Alyssa went on to get her master’s degree in Early Childhood Education, and found her soul fulfilled as she walked alongside folks committed to raising emotionally intelligent humans.

Through Seed & Sew, she provides training, coaching, and ongoing support to parents, teachers, and caregivers around emotional development, reparenting, and sleep. Alyssa is a small town Vermonter and mama and you can hear her talk about all things emotional development on her podcast, Voices of Your Village, which is currently tuned into from over 100 countries worldwide.

Frequently Asked Questions

Cost shouldn’t be a barrier to providing high-quality care. We created the S.E.E.D. Certification® Scholarship Program to support schools who are providing care for marginalized communities.

The scholarship program is designed so we can all pitch in to support children getting access to high-quality childcare. The scholarship program will prioritize schools with BIPOC and low income families.

Reduce burnout, attract parents 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.
