Meet SOme of our preschoolers
Built For Your Child
We build your program based on the individual needs of your child. Whether bedtimes feel like a hostage negotiation, they are always cooking up a plan to avoid sleep, they come through to your bed at night, or they just need “one more” (paci, teddy, you…) – we can get them the sleep they need.
Michelin Star personalities, always cooking up a plan for an extra pre-bed meal! These kiddos aren't ready for bed until they feel satiated.Read a sleep story here
"Just one more" story, drink, or minute before bed, these kids are hard-core negotiators. Future lawyers, perhaps?Read a Sleep Story here
The Chief of Staff
These little ones want to know where you are and what you're doing at all times... They’d do great in the White House!Read a Sleep Story here
Questions *everything* - especially you. Always wanting to understand "why", never settling until they get the answers...(smart kids...)Read a Sleep Story here
What We Guarantee
Bedtime doesn’t have to be a struggle. Many children resist going to bed or sleeping without some form of parental intervention, like being fed to sleep or having one more story. This is because they've learned to depend on these... things to fall asleep. What this means is that for the vast majority of children, bedtimes issues are behavioural rather than biological. Our goal for bedtime is to be a positive experience of connection before you say goodnight.
Sleep Through The Night
We can give you and your family uninterrupted sleep at night. From 6 months old, your child will have started to develop habits or ‘sleep associations’, anchoring them to certain people, objects or activities (eg. mom standing at the door...
, dad holding their hand, one more glass of water etc).
These sleep associations are usually somewhat arbitrary and cause persistent sleep disruptions for both parents and child that can last all the way into later preschooler years. With the right guidance, you can replace the sleep associations that are causing issues, while also making sure that your child still feels safe.
Cry-it-out is unfortunately not very effective - especially as children grow older. This is why we take a different approach. We focus on training you - the parent. Rather than not responding to your child crying at night (eg. CIO / Ferber), we teach...
We train parents to attune to their child’s needs, and respond in a way that both reassures the child but also continuously moves them towards better sleep habits. Through being present and engaged, you will not only solve any sleep issues your child is experiencing, but also deepen your connection with them.

Cry-it-out is unfortunately not very effective – especially as children grow older. We think there is a better way.
We focus on training you – the parent. Rather than not responding to a child crying at night (eg. CIO / Ferber), we teach the opposite. We train parents to attune to their child’s needs, and respond in a way that both reassures the child but also continuously moves them towards better sleep habits. Through being present and engaged, you will not only solve any sleep issues your child is experiencing, but also deepen your connection with them.
Getting great sleep is not magic.
Similarly, the secret to a full night’s sleep is about helping your child feel safe and secure in their sleeping environment; so much so that they no longer need to wake up and seek reassurance – rather, they feel secure in the knowledge that you watching over them and they are safe.
Our guarantees are simple:
- Have effortless bedtimes – 5 minutes or less (should you choose)
- Sleep through the night
- Our approach is non cry-it-out
- You have access to experts for up to 5 years
If we haven’t been able to achieve the two milestones above (5 min bedtime, sleeping through the night), we’ll give you the option to receive a full refund or extend the coaching and support until your you reach your goals. The choice is yours.
To be eligible for the full refund, you need to complete your program. This applies whether you do your plan at the recommended pace or opt for a slower one. Please note you can’t request a refund more than 60 days after purchasing Sleep School.
We have a 97% success rate amongst graduates. But it does require your effort and participation. If you for any reason need to cancel before completing your program, a $500 cancelation fee will apply. Please note you can’t request a cancellation more than 60 days after purchasing Sleep School.

Children with sensory processing disorders or ADHD? Absolutely. We have great success with our families who come for help.
Children who are teething or going through a regression? Yes, we will adapt your plan accordingly to make allowances for these situations. It will likely take a bit longer, but you can certainly get to the results.
Multiple children /twins? Yes, it does. However, we do advise you to either have two caregivers carrying out Sleep School, or to put one child through the program after the other.
Moms who are breastfeeding? Absolutely. We are breastfeeding and attachment-parenting friendly. We’ll work with you to ensure you’re still able to breastfeed in any capacity you seek, and we’ll help you wean your child at night if appropriate/desired. If your child still requires a night feed, we’ll structure your program to make allowances for this.
Co-sleeping? Co-sleeping is used to describe both bed-sharing and room-sharing:
- Room-sharing is fully supported by Batelle’s method.
- Bed-sharing however, is against AAP guidelines for sleep safety. So while we respect this as a cultural and family lifestyle choice, the method has not been designed for people who want to continue bed-sharing. If you want to transition your child to their own bed, we’d be happy to provide guidance.
We are a currently in the (long!) process of being awarded FDA approval. Batelle is a fully accredited Better Business Bureau member.
