How do we get an upset child to stop crying almost IMMEDIATELY in our
PCU Classes!?

Wishing you well, I Love You Ritual song & finger-play at PCU

We wish you well (hands over heart!)
We wish you well (hands over heart!)
All through the day today (arms welcome),
We wish you well!
(BIG warm smile)


At PCU we don't Judge you or your child,we simply

Wish you well!

You will NEVER be asked to leave our classes to calm a child. In our classes when there are upset moments, we choose to privately (or publically) wish each other well. No we don't break into song and yet, the child stops crying 9 out of 10 times in just seconds!

A quote from my memory from a two time I Love You Rituals mom:


"All of a sudden, my husband broke out in a song from your class, but he had adapted it,

'That ISN'T :) helpful...' We both broke into laughter instead of an argument! Then we actually solved the problem! Thank you, Miss Tracey"

Signing Smart
Infant & Toddler Teacher Workshop

Presented by
Tracey Kretzer or Laura Daub, M.A.

Encourage your child care center and/or babysitter to sign with your baby or toddler in just seconds a day and increase your child's IQ, ability to communicate, and confict resolution skills!
Toddler asks for BALL by signing instead of crying or grabbing!
Here a 14 month-old child (behind teacher) signs "BALL" and the toddler gives him the ball!! No crying, no whining, no grabbing, or interrupting the teacher!  
The National Institute of Health (NIH)

showed that babies & toddlers who were signed to as children had an average of

12 point higher IQ
by age 8!
