Our child centered approach to learning, focusing on nurturing and stable relationships, begins in our Infant classrooms and continues through Kindergarten. Our developmentally appropriate curriculum is aligned with the Pennsylvania Early Learning Standards and is designed to meet each child’s individual needs.
Parent Lecture Series #1:
DEVELOPMENTALLY INFORMED DISCIPLINE: AN INTRODUCTION
Alex Hoedeman-Eiteljorg is a therapist and parent educator who has been working therapeutically with families since 2003 and began consulting with parents and teachers in 2010. Alex’s focus with parents and teachers is helping them understand their children and the impact of their interactions with their children from a developmental perspective. What developmental issues guide our children’s behavior? What are the adult responses that encourage positive learning and growth? After graduating with a B.A. in Psychology from Amherst College, Alex taught pre-kindergarten for five years (where his focus was on the social and emotional development of his students) before returning to graduate school and obtaining a Master’s degree in Human Development from Harvard’s School of Education and then a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Temple University. Following graduate school, Alex worked as a family therapist for seven years. In 2010 Alex began staying home with his daughter part time and working part-time, spending most of his work hours leading group parenting sessions before branching out to professional development for teachers as well. With his daughter growing older, he has recently returned to full time work in the field.
