WHAT WOULD IT BE LIKE IF YOU COULD easily plan in the moment around a child's interest that ensured they moved forward in their development that encompassed all learning domains?

HOW WOULD IT FEEL TO START each day in an environment that speaks for you, one that sparks inquiry and deep play to open up your time to observe, plan and document easily?

WHAT WOULD IT BE LIKE IF YOU COULD build relationships with parents that inspired a connection and a new level of engagement that nourished their knowledge of play and how their children developed?

HOW WOULD IT FEEL IF YOU HAD the right questions to ask yourself that guided you through planning and documenting not only to nurture children's learning but strengthen and develop YOUR role as the Educator?

HOW WOULD IT FEEL IF YOU HAD the knowledge, resources and support to finally understand challenging behaviours and meltdowns?  How would it feel if you were able to move towards being proactive in a way that allowed you to embrace your role and do the work you dream of?

Imagine if...

this is all possible

Here you're valued,
understood and respected

You've taken on an exceptional role and you deserve the acknowledgement

Early Childhood Educator

Easy to listen to & she just draws you in

Veronica is so easy to listen to and shares her information in such a way that it just draws you in and gets you excited to learn more by using props, videos, real life scenarios, etc. She is very knowledgeable and better yet passionate about her work, and it shows! If you ever get the chance to learn from her, don’t miss the opportunity- you won’t regret it!”

Transformative & practical guidance

Ronnie's transformative and practical guidance throughout the programme helped me to connect with my own style, values and strengths and use them to create a wonderful learning space for the children, parents and educators. I am so much more confident and it shows. We recently had an inspection and were commended on our interactions with the children, environment and child-led approach.

Educator & Early Years Specialist

I'm often referencing Veronica's resources & ideas each day in my work

Veronica's insight and innovative ideas regarding supports for children with sensory needs gave me so much new perspective and inspiration to bring back to my own classroom and teaching practice. Veronica’s passion for early learning radiates and I find I’m often referencing resources and ideas she’s shared with me each day in my own work.

NEXT

Over the last 12 months, I feel I have evolved as an early years educator, I have definitely become more reflective. Ronnie puts so much interesting content into the course, it’s amazing. I am constantly inspired by her and her teaching style. 

This course is different to any PD I’ve ever done before, I feel like I’m on an early years evolving path.

Or Ronnie or Ron or V! I have many nicknames, and I am your go to gal for inspiration and support in your early years journey.  

I am also a mom to a beautiful boy who's ASD diagnosis and understanding his sensory needs has deeply influenced me as an Early Childhood Educator. Which led for some pretty bumpy years of doubting my abilities and confidence while operating my own early years program.

Which is why it's my mission to support Educators by building their knowledge on child development all while discovering their sense of wonder & curiosity again.

Active Members will be able to request a certificate of completion**. 

There are currently 20+ Hours of eligible professional development already in the membership:
  • The Confident Educator Course (15 Hours)
  • Mentorship Calls (1 hour per session)

  • Special Trainings (30 min sessions)
And of course these aspects of the membership will grow and you'll be able to get more PD hours!

**Professional development hours will need to be requested and only issued to current members.  

Every effort is made to ensure the certificate of completion includes the correct information, however with the vast requirements I cannot guarantee that your governing body will accept the certificates. It is your responsibility to ensure this course meets your regulations for acceptable PD requirements.

No PD hours will be eligible for request and issued after you cancel your membership.

Your fellow educators from all over the world have taken this course. That is the beauty of online learning, no matter where you live quality professional development is accessible. 

The currency is in Canadian Dollars but your method of payment will do the conversion based on the daily exchange rate.

I'M NOT TECH SAVVY, IS THIS DIFFICULT?

The only thing you need to figure out is a password that you can remember!  After you complete your purchase of the course, you'll receive a welcome email that includes the steps and links to a video of walking you through how to set up your member account, access the course and request your certificates!

I have walked educators through the steps over the phone too. You got this!

ANSWER

IS THIS A REGGIO TRAINING?

I have been embracing the philosophies and values of the Reggio Educators for many years, along with many other theories. I share my experiences and use resources from the REA along with many other theories to guide our learning. The REA is a way of thinking and not something we become certified in. 

As with any philosophy or child development theory we learn, we'll implement it into our own contexts. 

ANSWER

IS IT INSTANT ACCESS?

YES! After you complete your purchase, you'll receive 3 emails.

First, your receipt, second a welcome email with all the details and support to access your members area and finally the third is a link to complete your user account.

So that means within about 5-10 min after purchasing you'll be diving into your first workshop!

ANSWER

WHAT IS THE REFUND POLICY?

Your satisfaction of this membership is my priority.

Due to the nature of these digital online trainings there are no refunds, any additional support that you need is welcome.

We do not give refunds for time in the membership.

ANSWER

IS THIS SELF PACED LEARNING?

I get having to balance life and work and that finding time for PD can be a challenge. 

This is why the program is self-paced learning, providing you time, space and energy to put what you have learned into practice.

As long as you're an active member, you'll have continued access to all the content inside the membership.
