If your child's behavior is causing a distraction they will be asked to go to the calm down corner with an adult. They will be prompted to complete a behavior sheet to process their emotions and a note to the parent will be written. Incident reports are written when a behavior causes harm to students.

​Processing sheets and incident reports aid us in our ability to address a child's behavior. When an issue becomes evident a meeting with the parent will be scheduled so we can create a reasonable action plan. After 3 parent meetings attempting this plan, the board will evaluate the child's experience, then a representative of the board will meet with the parent to assess the child's ability to continue programming.



Good behavior is rewarded via our prize box for Red, Black and green tribes. Prizes are given out of view from other children and as children are leaving. We do this so there is not jealousy and tears, and so that a cognitive bridge between good behavior and reward is built, without negatively impacting children who are not yet at the leadership level we aspire for them.


At Mizizi Homeschool Co-Op we refrain from using the word "BAD" with children. We reframe negative behaviors as miscalculations and missed opportunities to act as a leader. We then ask them to recalculate or exhibit more leadership like qualities for our other students to follow.

Parents are asked to complete an Individual care and academic plan (or ICAP) for their children so staff and volunteers at Mizizi can provide the best Mizizi learning experience possible for their child.


Children attending the Mizizi Homeschool Co-Op join cohorts of youth determined by age or ability. Youth ages 2-3 are placed in the Yellow Tribe. Yellow tribe students should be potty training and walking before enrolling in the Mizizi program. Youth ages 4-6 are in the Red Tribe. Youth ages 7-10 are in the Black Tribe. Youth ages 11-13 are in the Green tribe.

The Mizizi Educational Enrichment program serves homeschooling and traditionally schooled children.

In order to enhance their social and emotional skills as well as invest in their knowledge of self, we have come together as parents to offer this program.

Mizizi shares the Pan-African experience through a positive lens by focusing on methods of healing and resilience in our communities throughout time and space. We are intentional about creating spaces that affirm and reflect the limitlessness, importance and power of our children and our people.
