Early Childhood Education Consultant

Support the development, growth and well-being of your staff. We work in early childhood education, care and early intervention settings.
Up-to-date, relevant and respectfully tailored in-house training, workshops and support with our early childhood education consultant.

Whether you operate a play-group, day-care or early intervention program, strengthening relationship-based practices in early childhood settings is the key to supporting a deep sense of belonging and satisfaction for staff, parents and children alike. 

We are all unique. Therefore, training and staff development solutions need to be tailored. Our development as staff grows from the strengths and passions of the people in each setting. My goal as an Early Childhood Education Consultant is to support your team to use, extend and embed relationship-based practices, policies, programs and curricula to support children’s learning, development and social well-being. 

My work draws from a 25-year background blending health, education and care for young children. I have almost two decades of experience in professional training, mentorship and supervision.
