Our mission is to provide the community with the resources necessary to positively impact a family and child’s welfare and quality of life by educating children through mindful learning.
We believe all humans learn through an integrated approach. For healthy social, emotional and neurological development, we all learn through and within relationships with another person. Our developmental, neurologically-based program educates parents, teachers and children how to positively influence each other's lives by learning from interactive cognitive engagements. When a child’s developing mind is nurtured along a predictable, progressive path, alongside an adult, the foundation for lifelong learning is established. It is through our unique, mindful, developmental approach that a child can progress through and/or remediate missed developmental steps to establish constructive lifelong learning behaviors in a comprehensive manner. We are committed to positively impacting a person’s quality of life.
Our Beliefs for Working with Children
All children learn through relationships. Adults need to be actively guiding children’s thinking from infancy through adulthood. Research shows that parents can impact their child's physical and psychological growth and potential from conception on by mindfully and consciously interacting with their child. When we are mindful about our environment, our interactions, and our communication with children, we are creating brain connections a child will store for a lifetime. Through this, we guide and support how children perceive, engage with, and connect with the world around them. The MInD Development Approach offers a natural perspective on child development. It provides an understanding of how to handle, understand, analyze, and channel a child's learning behaviors. Adults and children learn how to make interactions with others the best they can be. We can all learn ways to enhance our relationships with our children.
We all learn through and from another person. This can be seen in many different aspects of our lives. Parents need relationships with other parents to help with child-raising. Professionals will find another co-worker to confide in and find professional support. Friends seek out one another for friendship, solidarity, and social support. Every child needs to learn how to grow up from another adult, whether it’s a parent, grandparent or teacher. We all seek out other people in our world to provide us with social, emotional, and relational support at different points in our lives. Children need the same thing, but learning this may not come naturally to all children.
Our vision is to provide support, education, consultation, and training to create a relationship-based culture where children and families are provided with a safe environment, compassionate communication, and trusting, collaborative relationships. Every moment is focused on building a meaningful quality of life for all.
