Whether you're NEW or a seasoned ECE using child led, emergent curriculum...

embracing the magic of loose parts play in your role means

That you can regain your energy and get excited about your role again by igniting your own creativity.

Having more time to observe, document and curate holistic child led experiences that support ALL children.

Supporting and building strength based relationships with the children & families to become proactive and solve behaviours together.

I'M READY FOR THIS TOOLKIT!

But here's the problem...

You're not sure how do to introduce loose parts to infants, toddlers and preschoolers and are AFRAID to use all the small pieces.

You don't want to waste your LIMITED TIME and well let's face it, energy, on setting up provocations the children wont touch.

You feel like all your time is spent managing behaviours and endless meltdowns and think loose parts will only cause MORE issues.

You're not sure if you can get admin, families, fellow educators....basically everyone, onboard with the idea and benefits of these thingamabobs!

And trust me...I GET IT.

Embracing loose parts play into your early years practice can be incredibly overwhelming when first starting out - especially when you're chasing energetic children, wiping bums, singing the clean up song for the thousandth time that day all while "being on" for 9 hours a day.

So here's what I want to say to you believer of play and child led learning (and those trying to move away from theme based learning).

I truly believe that the key missing element to getting more time and calm in your routine, growing in your role in NEW and better ways and still have energy left at the end of your day for your personal life - is loose parts play.

Here's what I mean.

There are WAY more silly moments like this...now (my little guy in the pic!)

My husband and I have had way too many conversations about how our son cried so much and lived a very distressful life.

This also impacted HOW I could show up for the children in my early learning program. All of my time was spent "managing" (really being reactive) and I wasn't able to support ALL THE CHILDREN how I truly envisioned.

By embracing the magic of loose parts play and all of the connections to child development and self-regulation I was able to inspire, support and nurture ALL the children with ease.  Loose parts enabled me to find innovative ways to connect with our autistic son and support the individual needs of all the children.

When I first started with loose parts play I only thought it would be for more fun.

Now I am forever grateful to embracing what ALL that loose parts play can bring to the children, families and YOU.

If you're willing to commit to embracing the magic of loose parts play, learn what I have to teach you and implement it into your early years role, I promise to value and respect your time & energy with only sharing practical strategies and ideas that will support you right now to simplify your planning and solve behaviours.

So that you can find more calm, ease, time and energy to keep doing your oh so important work and impacting children's lives with play based learning.

i'm so ready, take me to the toolkit!

As an Early Childhood Consultant, I've been sharing my ideas, knowledge and practice with thousands of educators just like you on curating an inclusive program and nurturing children’s capabilities with experiences filled with wonder and curiosity.

Over the last 10 years I don’t just have a collection of loose parts…

I have a library! 

A library filled with curiosity-driven materials that helped me find clarity in my role, made my planning process easier, become proactive with behaviours and one of the best parts... helped me find my sense of creativity and love my job again!

And, to this day, I continue to be mesmerized by these incredible materials.

Loose Parts Play is my...JAM!

IS RIGHT FOR YOU IF YOU ARE...

An Early Childhood Educator, Childminder, Kindergarten Teacher, Director...you name it, who wants to utilize the power of loose parts play.

A seasoned educator who values the benefits of play, but you want to get your TIME BACK to respond to the many interest's children have.

Tired of using behaviour strategies that don't work and are looking for NEW innovative ideas that support the child, family and YOU (cause you're in it everyday!)

Wanting too curate an inclusive early learning environment that nurtures individual and group needs and interests.

At a place where your ready to move away from theme based planning and curate holistic child led play experiences.

THAT'S ME! take me to the toolkit

EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATOR
I always walk away with new insights and perspectives. Her courses are informative, yet offer practical ideas for implementation.

COLLEEN BERG
ASSISTANT DIRECTOR
You could have not explained Provocations / Emergent Curriculum / Reggio Emilia Approach any more clearer. You have helped many childcare educators and gave them the tools and guidelines to teach in a whole new way. 

LEAH HOGAN
EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATOR
I learned how to listen to their interests and their wants, putting creating EXPERIENCES ahead of planning activities so that it is more memorable for the kids and they gain a better learning experience.

LAURA ENGLAND
AUTHOR & EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATOR
Her knowledge on sensory needs covered everything I needed to know to prepare myself for teaching children with a sensory processing disorder and it was great to learn from someone with first hand experience.

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!” 

Easy to listen to & she just draws you in

I have a much more clear understanding about actually implementing and introducing loose parts into my classroom now. This provided concrete ideas about what to include, how to display them, and how to support my preschoolers in their play. 

NINA PROUT
CHILDMINDER
The Supporting Sensory Needs workshop was invaluable, as it has allowed me to communicate effectively and gain the supports needed for a child in my care.

JUDI MOYLE
EARLY CHILDHOOD TRAINER
I have been in the industry for 100 years, and needed support for my new Educators and finding you has given me everything I was looking for.

SUSAN MERIWETHER
EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATOR
I was concerned about supplying Loose Parts opportunities for younger children, but you did a great job of providing ideas for all ages.

Veronica's trainings are informative, succinct, easy to follow, and fun to watch. Veronica herself has a wealth of knowledge in early learning, from loose parts to sensory processing and delivers practical strategies for Educators at all levels of experience in their roles.

Trainings are informative, succinct, easy to follow & fun!
