All kids exhibit challenging behaviors at times. This behavior is often unknowingly reinforced by caregivers at home and school. We work with the family to identify the function of the behavior, design a plan to teach the child more appropriate ways of getting those same needs met, and then help implement the plan at home and/or at school.
Preschool Studio provides training and coaching for childcare professionals working with children with behavioral challenges. Depending on the specific needs, we teach the caregiver strategies for easing transitions, setting limits without engaging in power struggles, and helping the child achieve developmental milestones. We specialize in training and coaching nannies in potty training procedures.

Play Date and Playgroup Facilitation
Play dates are an excellent opportunity for kids to build and deepen friendships with classmates, practice their developing social, emotional, and communication skills in a natural setting, and develop confidence entering future social situations. We facilitate playdates with 2 or more children with similar goals or accompany the child on a playdate the family arranges, helping it be a positive, successful, fun, learning experience for all the playmates.
We assess the child's readiness and help the family prepare themselves and their child for potty training. We work closely with the family to design a personalized potty training plan and provide as much support as the family wants through the potty training process on an hourly basis in the home or by phone. If it's determined that a child is not ready for toilet training, we will help the family work on developing the skills needed for readiness.
We also provide a potty training concierge service where you can sit and watch or go to work and come home to your toilet trained tot. Read more
Special Education Itinerant Teacher (SEIT) Program
We help integrate children presenting with academic, behavioral, social, emotional, sensory, attention, or communication concerns into their home, school, or other community environments. Some families use our private SEIT services to ensure high quality support, confidentiality, and personalized attention, while other families utilize our services to supplement or supervise a child's mandated SEIT hours.
