The Early Literacy and Learning Model/Plus (ELLM/Plus)

The Early Literacy and Learning Model/Plus (ELLM/Plus) is a research-based, comprehensive curriculum for 3, 4, and 5year old preschool children that has been proven to be effective improving children's early reading achievement. The literacy-focused curriculum builds children's cognitive development through literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, the arts, motor experiences, and physical health. Children's acquisition of important cognitive and social/emotional development is facilitated through interactions with supportive teachers and other adults who encourage children's curiosity, persistence, and creativity by planning and implementing engaging activities and providing support during learning experiences. ELLM/Plus is designed to expand children's vocabularies and refine their understanding and comprehension of words they know and use.

Conscious Discipline

Conscious Discipline is a comprehensive emotional intelligence and classroom management system that integrates all domains of learning (social, emotional, physical, cultural and cognitive) into one seamless curriculum. Conscious Discipline is an evidence-based comprehensive program that utilizes everyday events rather than an external curriculum, and addresses the adult's emotional intelligence as well as the child's. Teachers learn to respond to daily conflict in a way that transforms it into an opportunity to teach critical life skills, and watch every aspect of their classroom life improve! Conscious Discipline is evidence-based, and was named as a national model for character education by the Florida State Legislature.


CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health) is the most proven program to prevent childhood obesity and launch kids and communities toward healthier lifestyles. By impacting a child's nutrition, level of physical activity, classroom environment and community, CATCH has changed lives in over 10,000 schools and communities nationwide. CATCH creates an environment that makes healthy decisions fun, and our "Coordination Kits" make it easy for schools and childcare programs to use the program effectively across disciplines. CATCH has the largest evidence base of any obesity prevention program, and is championed by health professionals and school administrators nationwide.
