Promising Practices

We partner with parents and caregivers of preschoolers aged 3-to-5-years-old for healthy
child development and family well-being.

Services That Support Your Needs.

We are trained professionals who can answer your questions and provide real help. We help children and their parents or caregivers build executive function and self-regulation skills.

  • We make home visits weekly or bi-weekly to boost kindergarten-readiness and build skills for lifelong focus and resilience.
  • We assist families in setting goals and making a plan for success.
  • We utilize the EGG Toolkit. EGG is short for “Empowering Generational Greatness. EGG contains fun, flexible, and science-backed activities to help children and their parents or caregivers build executive function and self-regulation skills.
  • We help children and parents learn to share thoughts and feelings, reflect on behavior, and manage emotions.
  • We provide incentives for participation and achieving goals and an at-home children’s book library.
  • We connect families to community resources so your family is safe and supported.
  • We nurture joy in your home!
