It’s been amazing to see the difference between my preschooler who experienced the Grow Strong Roots curriculum and his brother who did not. My younger son is able to regulate his emotions, solve conflict peacefully and is aware of himself and others in a way my other son is not. I am grateful for the parent support so we can teach our entire family these methods.

Miss Erin is incredible! I have seen lots of teachers teach, but her ability to reach students and help them understand how they learn is a gift.
