I was a classroom teacher for over twenty years and now teach at a local university in the education department. I strongly believe that when it comes to learning, children need to have choices that go beyond the classroom. I also passionately believe in my responsibility to share what I’ve learned with the next generations of classroom teachers and parents. I try to provide wonderfully rich learning environments for children, in the classroom and out. If we watch carefully, kids are constantly trying to reinvent the world around them and I am fortunate to be a part of it!
The videos that you find here are playful, messy and fun. Children learn best this way. We help by setting the stage with opportunities for discovery, inspired learning, and just enough challenge to keep them growing.
If you want to engage in play with your children as a natural way to stay curious, and keep learning something new, welcome. You came to the right place!
