Children today are bombarded with forces that teach them to interrupt, compete, and compare. As a result, there is a lack of self-confidence, emotional responsibility, and social skills in children. It can be attributed to the pressures of the modern world and a failure to listen to natural instincts. On this note, Vanessa Kahlon started KFS School with a mission is to meet each child where they are on all levels to promote social and emotional skills while providing individualized academics.
The Open House event organized by Vanessa Kahlon will be held on Thursday, August 5, 2021, and presents an opportunity for the general public to learn more about the school and the founder’s mission.
Specializing in teaching children body awareness, self-regulation, and social skills, Vanessa gives children a chance to learn how to calm their bodies without having someone else tell them to do so, thereby making children their own advocates. In addition, she is passionate about keeping families together, communicative, happy, and healthy. While Vanessa’s approach is professional, it is personal to a large extent driving the needed effectiveness.
Over the years, the San Francisco-based entrepreneur has been featured in multiple articles with the students at her school. Vanessa has also developed YEAS Yoga (Yoga Education for Autism Spectrum), an exciting, personalized 10-hour yoga teacher training certification that addresses the self-regulation needs of high-spirited children.
Vanessa Kahlon was named the 2014 Woman of the Year and Entrepreneur Herald by the National Association of Professional Women. In June 2021, she was honored as one of the Top 30 Influential Entrepreneurs of 2021, given her activities with KFS School, founded in December 2016. During the pandemic, KFS School enjoyed an unprecedented level of growth, supporting many families and their unique needs. In addition, the school recently bagged a feature on CBS’s “This is SF” season 3.
She is the author of the book “Shut Up & Parent,” that aims to empower parents with tools and strategies for managing daily behavioral struggles. She cares deeply for all clients and their families, bringing purposeful challenges to stretch them beyond their current capacity. Vanessa calls herself a Family Interventionist since her work revolves around the entire family, not just the child. She provides individualized and intensive behavioral coaching with a strong emphasis on relationships in the home or classroom.
