Working With Kids

At age eighteen, I had an amazing opportunity. I student taught at an innovative pre-school where I learned far more than how to teach ABCs. I learned that environment matters. Kids do best at picking up and putting things away when they know where things live. I learned that volume overwhelms. Kids experience frustration when they can’t easily find favorite books, toys and games. Maeve’s Method for Kids involves involvement and participation. When I began my work, I was lucky enough to have children as young as two years old wander in as I worked with mom or dad. Their interest in what we were doing – and their desire to help – transformed my work. It showed me the key to organizing kids is to work with them , never around them.  An easy place to start with kids is in their room, playroom or the family kitchen. A Maeve’s Method session with kids will focus on these spaces. You and your child (or children) will be involved in the process.

Working together – garners the best results.

To schedule a session for you and your child, contact us or schedule a coaching session. Just let us know during scheduling that your children will participate – and we’re all set!
