KIERSTIN DEROSIER

Licensed Early Childhood Educator 

Licensed Infant/Toddler Educator 
Licensed Special Needs Educator

Certified Sleep Consultant

Certified Potty Training Consultant

After working as an Early Childhood Educator for the past decade, I have seen time and time again parents struggling to find the right techniques that work for their individual children when it comes to sleep training, potty training and common behavioural issues. 


I have started Calming Roots as a Sleep & Parenting Consultant to help families that need an extra boost of confidence in their abilities. Not every family is the same, and not every sleep or parenting technique can be approached the same way.

I work with families to create & implement plans that suit their specific needs in a loving and positive approach, that meets their needs and their child's that are centred around where their child is developmentally. I believe, when children are given predictable & consistent routines, they are able to grow deep roots and blossom!

AT CALMING ROOTS.....

My goal is to help parents find methods that work for their individual families to create loving &
respectful homes. This can be done by giving parents the tools to create predictable, consistent
boundaries and routines that will allow their children to grow & thrive.

You will experience first class professionalism from Kierstin. Nonjudgemental & deeply knowledgable.


You will experience a total sense of kindness from someone who is invested in your success. She is so attentive, a strong communicator, with unwavering dedication to the task. So many services we employ in our lives have a habit of coming on strong to impress and fade over time. Not here, it's been consistent all the way through. You will have the support you need.


We experienced very rapid results; were amazed with how quickly and (seemingly easy) it was to be able to bring our son around to much improved sleeping! Kierstin was able to stick handle multiple regressions with ease and get us back on track. I cannot emphasize this aspect enough: To have to battle through regressions on our own, when exhausted, would have been an impossibility, we would have been lost at sea.


To have the guidance on hand in real-time was a life changer. Just so thrilled for the progress we've experienced and wish we would had reached out far sooner!

FAQ

WHY SHOULD I HIRE A SLEEP OR PARENTING CONSULTANT?

If you are overwhelmed or not quite sure where to start and what techniques you should be implementing with your child, hiring a consultant is a great idea! I will help you determine age appropriate techniques that you are 100% comfortable implementing. I will check in frequently to make sure you are staying consistent and will be there along the way to answer any questions that may arise.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  1. Send me an email through the contact page or book a  FREE 15 minute consultation so that you can make sure we are a good fit before you commit to buying.
    **If you would like to do this, go to 'book online' and send a request. We can do it either by a phone call or zoom...your choice! **

     

  2. After we have connected, and you have determined you would like to go ahead with one of my packages, go to the 'book online' tab.

    Payment options:
    E-transfer: info@calmingroots.ca (preferred)
    Paypal
    Mastercard
    Visa

     

  3. Once I have received your payment I will send you an intake form. Please fill it out as soon as you can so that I can go over it before our initial meeting.
     

  4. I will send you a zoom link via email. I like to have our initial consultation on Zoom so that I can meet you and your little one!
    **In person meetings now available within the Okanagan, BC**

     

  5. I will then begin to build and write up your customized plan with detailed instructions on how to implement with your child.
    **Will take 3-5 Business Days**

     

  6. Once your package is ready I will hand deliver it to your home or will mail it to you (anywhere in Canada). 
    Once you have had a chance to look it all over we will have another meeting to answer any questions you may have.

     

  7. I will be available for unlimited text/phone and email support during the duration of your plan.
    **During business hours**

HOW LONG TO SEE RESULTS?

Seeing results will differ for each individual family. Age and temperament of each individual child are factors that will change outcomes for every family. Being CONSISTENT and setting age appropriate goals will be the key to success when implementing plans, and you should see improvements after a few days.   

WILL THERE BE TEARS?

The short answer is.....probably. These tears will be out of pure frustration, that things are not going the way your child wants. Your child has developed habits and expectations on how things should go, and as we all know...it is hard to create new routines. The more consistent you are the faster your child will learn that you will not be going back to the old way of doing things. The first few days are always the hardest but sticking them out and staying consistent will optimize results sooner. That being said, I will NEVER expect you to leave your child to ‘cry it out’. I have many different techniques that I can teach you how to implement and can scale each plan to your wishes so that you are 100% comfortable implementing it at home. 


All plans are formed with positive parenting techniques that set consistent boundaries while still providing care & love. 

CAN I STILL BREASTFEED WHILE SLEEP TRAINING AT NIGHT? 

Of course!
