Schools Excelling in Emotional Development (S.E.E.D.) Certification®

Know your 
child's care promotes
healthy emotional development

Imagine a world...

Where early childhood educators are experts in fostering emotional intelligence in the kids they care for.

Where teachers have the tools to support children without being overwhelmed by the constant pull for connection. 

Where you know your childcare provider is trained in emotion processing, with an approach that goes beyond classroom management and punishment/reward systems.

Support your child's teachers with the S.E.E.D. Certification®


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

Why should your child's school be S.E.E.D. Certified®?


 Just like all of us, teachers carry biases, triggers, and social programming into adulthood. Most don’t get any training or support on emotion processing. Left unchecked, these biases play into a system of punishment/reward that leaves kiddos disengaged from their education. In the long run, this contributes to a school-to-prison pipeline where children of color are at a particular disadvantage.

When your child's school is S.E.E.D. Certified®, the work you do at home to validate your child’s emotions and regulate their central nervous system will be reinforced in the classroom. In a unified approach, S.E.E.D. Certified® teachers are ready to work together with parents, guiding kiddos toward a brighter, emotionally intelligent future. 

Yes! I want my child's school to be certified.

With the S.E.E.D. Certification®, your kiddo's 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.

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 and caregivers around emotional development, reparenting, and sleep. Alyssa is a small town Vermonter 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.
