A proven program, especially for early educators

PECE: Positive Early Childhood Education – Powered by Triple P

The PECE program has been thoroughly researched and evaluated, including in a randomized controlled trial. The results? Not just significantly less disruptive behavior, but also increased job satisfaction, less stress at work, and better teamwork.

Be more confident, less stressed, and love your job!

Sure you love working with children, but let's face it, being an Early Childhood Educator isn't easy! Educators who've done the PECE program say they feel more prepared and supported to meet children's needs and address challenging behavior.

Confidently respond to each child's emotional needs

In a group setting, and especially where different children have very specialized needs, you can feel overwhelmed. PECE offers you particular skills and strategies to respond to each child in a way that supports them, while you stay calm and confident.

Better communication (with children, co-workers and parents)

PECE gives you tips and techniques to make communication consistent, easier and more effective, and increase cooperation and support in the workplace.
