Our Kids Life Coach Training
The Kids Life Studio® has taken the lead in establishing an ethical framework for the Kids Life Coaching profession to develop by offering quality training that is fully comprehensive and easily accessible.
In 2014, we launched our online school, The Kids Life Coach Academy in response to a demand for professionals around the world, either wanting to add to their existing business or to start a business as a certified Play Based Coach.
We didn’t want to be just another service provider in the Kids Life Coaching industry that is largely unregulated and becoming diluted by “quick fix” options that look good in theory but aren’t always realistic in practice.
It is easy to offer once off training without accountability, follow through and follow up but that isn’t what we are about.
We commit to:
- Creating programmes that build resilience and confidence in young people based on the fundamentals of a healthy emotional intelligence.
- Empowering and engaging parents, teachers and caregivers to reinforce and extend the benefits of our Play Based Coaching programme.
- Creating a well qualified network of suitable individuals to deliver Kids Life Studio® programmes across the globe
- Providing a well-researched system, which is designed to give children and their families the tools to cope with whatever life throws their way!

How does our training process work?
Step 1 – Screening
Before being enrolled in our Play Based Coach training, we ask that you complete an online expression of interest form and attend a video strategy call to see if our organisation is a good fit for you. Although all of our certified Play Based Coaches work as independent Kids Life Coaches, we recruit members to join our global network who share our vision and are…
Step 2 – Training
We offer online self-paced training through our Kids Life Coach Academy School as well as in person practical and experiential CPD training events throughout the year. Our training has diploma accreditation and once our students meet the criteria they can apply for status of professional membership. We also have our own code of ethics that ensures we have a global network of ethical world class kids life coaches.
Step 3 – Mentorship
We don’t just train you and expect you to work in isolation. We take great pride in having a global network of collective wisdom that our students can tap into twice weekly in our online group mentorship sessions. This means that with ongoing professional supervision, problems are solved collectively and new perspectives are easily gained from fellow coaches who have experience coaching children.
With the support of our strong brand presence as a backup, we give the flexibility to choose where, when and how coaches would like to assist children. The benefit of our training is that whilst we give the tools, templates and proven systems to coach children, you aren’t tied down by any restrictions and you can build your coaching practice around the needs you identify in your community.
Step 4 – Certification
All students who participate in our training complete practical case studies that are based on putting our 10-step Kids Life Studio® Coaching process into action. Each student is evaluated on the quality of their Play Based Coaching according to a set of diploma criteria that ensures that they can confidently support children by offering quality coaching that shows measurable results.
Step 5 – Professional Supervision
We are proud of our highly passionate global community of Play Based Coaches who are driven with huge aspirations to change the world, one child at a time. Which is why there is great value in becoming a professional member of our Kids Life Studio® Global Network. By attending twice weekly professional supervision, you will stay in touch with coaching best practices as you gain exposure to ongoing case studies and useful tips that will help you to perfect the art of coaching children.
