Origins Learning Community















Welcome to Origins Learning Community


Origins Learning Community is a local Houston, Texas nonprofit 501(c) 3 founded in 2019. We mentor families and early childhood educators on how to best support children's social and emotional skills. Why? These skills are vital to children's future success in school and becoming members of a caring community.

We focus on ages birth to 8 years.

We offer a combination of clock-hour trainings, workshops and coaching services for educators, families and children. We also offer support with child-guidance and promoting positive behavior in young children.

We are a community of lifelong learners as well as trainers. We invite you to learn and teach alongside us, supporting other families and educators in the process. 

Welcome to our community!

 Meeting Children's Needs 

Origins Learning Community was founded by parents, teachers, childcare providers, and trainers. After getting to know many childcare teachers and parents in the Houston community and hearing stories about the social and emotional struggles their children were facing, we created programs to teach children and adults in their lives how to manage and express their emotions in positive ways.  By doing this, children's behavior issues improve, they develop healthy self-esteem, reduce their stress, and feel motivated to take on challenges they face in life.       


Research has continually shown since 2005 that somewhere around 50,000 preschoolers are kicked out of child care each year because of behavior concerns. That is roughly 137 children a day. Some studies say this number is even higher! These children are bright with kind hearts, but never reach their full potential. With community support, we can give adults in their lives the skills to advocate for and support them, helping them become compassionate and successful members of our community. 


We would love your support. There are a number of ways you can help us:

  • Sign up for a training or workshop, depending on your needs.
  • We are looking for Texas state registered trainers to join our team!
  • Volunteer your time supporting one of our wonderful trainers during workshops or  teacher trainings.
  • Click on the Donate button at the bottom of this page and consider donating to any one of our programs that we offer. Many of the families and teachers we work with are low income and could not normally afford services that we provide. Our programs are voluntarily created by trainers in the low-income bracket who could also use your support. Thank you for your consideration.

FREE Training and Mentoring for Early Childhood Educators!

        I know many of you have been faced with financial difficulties recently due to COVID-19. As Executive Director of Origins Learning Community I wanted to offer Early Childhood Educators an opportunity for free professional development training and mentoring. If you are located in the Houston area or you would like support remotely, I am currently offering my own time to give you:

  • 2 free hours of in-classroom coaching or out-of-classroom personalized mentoring for each individual teacher
  • 2 free clock-hours of traditional training for a center (On any topic of your choice, in person, via Zoom, or online only.)

       Now more than ever, children need us to:

  • relieve their stress
  • build their self-esteem
  • help them learn to express emotions in healthy ways and solve social problems with others.

       These skills are vital to children's future success and becoming members of a safe and caring community. These skills will help pull them through tough times like we have been facing over the last few months. I hope you will take up my offer. 

Thanks so much and have a beautiful week.
