Schools Excelling in Emotional Development (S.E.E.D.) Certification®
20% of early childhood teachers burnout every year
We are here to solve this challenge with you.
The Collaborative Emotion Processing (CEP) Method, researched by Alyssa Blask Campbell, M.Ed., Lauren Stauble, M.S., and Angela Garcia, M.A. in C & I, in conjunction with the Psychology department at Brandies University, informs the professional development, ongoing coaching and implementation of the S.E.E.D. Certification® in schools around the country.
Attract and retain high-quality teachers
"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."
What our programs are saying...
"I appreciate the forum the most. It is a wonderful platform to ask questions, and more importantly receive feedback from other teachers in the field but also some of the specialists in the field."
"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."

Who do we collaborate with?
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.
