Talitha Koum Institute is not simply childcare, but a faith-based early childhood mental health therapeutic nursery. Every child has their own therapeutic plan provided throughout the day by their therapeutic teachers who receive extensive training on the job. Our professional training covers • Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics from Child Trauma Academy • the HighScope® cognitive method (backed by a 50-year longitudinal study) • specific therapeutic language and its usage • sensorimotor interventions for emotional regulation and brain development • and a neutral approach to problem solving instead of punitive disciplinary actions. In addition to in-service trainings, Talitha Koum holds Clinical Supervision every Friday afternoon from 2:00 to 4:00 for our teachers. During that time, self care is explored as well as the care of our children.

We hope this information will help you to discern if you have been uniquely gifted and called to become part of our team!
