Join the Sproutable community of parent educators. We believe in a world where every human knows that they matter. We believe all children and adults deserve dignity, respect and compassion.

What you can expect

– Meaningful discussion –

We learn through experience, and we learn through discussion.  At Sproutable, we make sure to have spaces for educators to come together and connect around the curriculum we offer. This happens with whole group and small groups discussions during the trainings AND outside of the class in our community space. It is one thing to learn the content, it is something different to practice facilitating it. Having a community to lean on is a powerful tool for growth.


– Personal growth –

Positive Discipline is not only a parenting program that educators are trained to deliver, it is also an opportunity for growth and development for those that step into the leadership role. As you come to understand behavior and learning in a new way, you will find places to expand your own thinking about yourself, others and the world.


– Support –

Here at Sproutable, we believe in delivering a personal, high touch experience with a facilitator who is invested in your development. Our offers are meant to continue to broaden your skills, and deepen your understanding of the philosophy of Positive Discipline. Our trainers are available to support you in getting started with this work and are invested in your success.

Positive Discipline

Dr. Jane Nelsen’s Positive Discipline parent education is based on the theories of psychologists Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs. Positive Discipline helps your child feel a sense of significance and belonging through learning important life skills of empowerment, self-reliance and cooperation. This parenting style encourages kindness and firmness at the same time.

Kindness is the way we interact and connect with our children, honoring their dignity and respecting their needs.

Firmness is the way we respect ourselves and the needs of the situation, as well as following through with what we say we are going to do.
