We are proud to announce that Tammy Malcolm has just confirmed that she will be implementing ‘The Best of Friends’™ program in 2017 on her premises in Hackham, South Australia. Clients from Hackham and surrounding areas will now be able to benefit from this engaging and effective Social and Emotional Program.

“Tammy is a registered teacher with many years experience working with students from pre-school to year twelve. Her most challenging and rewarding job is being a mother of three boys with additional needs. She is passionate about ensuring that all young people have the chance to learn in a way that is meaningful and relevant.” 

Tammy’s enrolment continues to set a landmark moment for us at Quirky Kid as we continue to work incredibly hard to produce innovative and effective programs and resources that are tried, tested and loved in classrooms, clinics and lounge rooms around the globe.

Dates for 2017 workshops will soon be available here.

About HE:LP – Heuristic Education: Learning and Practise

Heuristic Education aims to encourage students to learn, discover, understand and solve problems independently by experimenting, evaluating possible solutions, or by using trial and error methods. HE:LP’s premises can be configured into a sensory gym or open plan classroom and include both indoor and outdoor spaces that can be utilised to suit the needs of individual students.

Social and Emotional Learning

Equally with her commitment to providing consistent and effective services to young clients and their families, Tammy Malcolm has demonstrated clear commitment to the Social and Emotional Learning of her clients.

About The Best of Friends and the School

The implementation of The Best of Friends™ will take place progressively and will be closely supported by the program author and our Educational Developmental Psychologist Dr. Kimberley O’Brien and our team. Participants will receive a copy of the exclusive workbook developed by Quirky Kid. Facilitators will have access to a series of manuals and regular supervision as and when required.

Interested in offering ‘The Best of Friends™’ program at your school?

Currently, the program is available to a limited number of schools and organisations. The BoF program has a comprehensive implementation, evaluation and monitoring plan and we are keen to identify partners committed to SEL implementation and evaluation.

Schools can choose from a target (small group) or universal (classroom) format. We will provide all the implementation assistance required, including training, supervision and support for key staff members.
