ISO Trauma-Informed Child Care Programs


I was wondering if anyone is aware of a child care program that would consider themselves "Trauma-Informed"  -  implementing trauma-informed practices throughout their program.  

I'd like to reach out to them for an interview, with the potential of being featured in an upcoming publication.

Thank you!

Hi Suzanne,

I just found your post and I'd love to chat with you! I don't run a child care program myself but this is a key area of research and development for me! My team and I have created and are testing out Roots of Resilience: Teachers Awakening Children's Healing. It's designed specifically for child care providers & early childhood teachers working with children impacted by trauma. I also conduct related research to find ways to realize the potential of Early Care and Education to help young children and families to build resilience. The best way to reach me is



Hi Suzanne, Shannon, and Leslie - We're researching potential curricula to use specifically with Family Child Care Providers, here in California. Would Roots of Resilience and other references be tailored meet their needs as well? Also, do you know whether any of these qualify for IV-E federal funding/reimbursement?

Thank you, in advance

I would be delighted to discuss my trauma-informed trainings.  I provide accredited trainings to early childhood teachers and family child care providers.  So many of these professionals emerge from adverse childhood experiences! My work with them focuses on improving their emotional self-management through the "rebuilding of their mindsets and restructuring their brain patterns".  I do this through teaching and training them in The 7 Mindsets demonstrated by those who have overcome life's biggest challenges, achieved the greatest goals, and experience true meaning and happiness along the way.  The training amounts to a re-regulation of the brain's patterns.  As they apply these Mindsets to their daily challenge with children, and with life in general, they not only experience improved relationships with the children they serve, but also pass these patterns of self-empowerment through compassion to those children, during their most formative years for development.  We are providing children from elementary school age upward with The 7 Mindsets Social Emotional Learning Curriculum in schools throughout the U.S. (see  We have reached over 500,000 young people to date.  Feel welcome to move to email at
