By providing an oasis with simple beauty, comfort, and nourishing conversations, Simplicity Learning is a haven and an antidote to a world of disoriented children and overwhelmed adults.
In our calm and secure setting, parents, teachers and caregivers have the gift of a few hours of time and space to explore what comes from within them, as opposed to what comes at them.
“Where did we ever get the crazy idea that in order to make children do better, first we have to make them feel worse? Think of the last time you felt humiliated or treated unfairly. Did you feel like cooperating or doing better?”
- Jane Nelsen
Our staff are here to offer insights and guidance regarding some specific and practical parenting and teaching skills, and creative alternatives when you know what you wish to avoid in your parenting or teaching, but you aren’t quite sure what to do instead!
We hope that you will feel right at home at Simplicity Learning. We exist to help you determine the most developmentally-appropriate expectations for each child, the appropriate timing for introducing the skills that you value most, and a sensible balance between adult authority and each child’s increasing responsibility for making individual choices.
Simplicity Learning offers child development education in the form of workshops, parent and teacher evenings, study groups, private coaching, STARS trainings, and other events and workshops for parents and child care providers.
Most of our services are offered for adults only, but parents are welcome to bring their children with them to our weekly playgroups and to family coaching appointments in office or at home.
Please inquire if you are interested in joining us for an upcoming event or would like to learn more about hosting a custom-designed offering at your own location.
