MY SECRET SAUCE IS TO CAPTIVATE YOU WITH INSPIRING AND PRACTICAL IDEAS TIED TO CHILD DEVELOPMENT....

that actually work.

WOULD YOUR ROLE BE DIFFERENT IF...

You stopped wasting time searching for other people’s ideas?

You knew how to setup up the materials to communicate for you?

You felt less frustrated and knew what to do when the children didn’t engage?

You knew how to use provocations as a proactive tool to support children exhibiting behaviours?

Your planning process opened up more time for observation, reflection and documentation?

YOU CAN RELATE TO THESE SCENARIOS

After a long day of nurturing and scaffolding children's learning you have to stay at work for a two hour workshop that doesn't interest you or leaves you with more questions.

Or

Paid for a webinar that was either only LIVE or had a short window to rewatch the training. You knew was going to support you, but life happened and you couldn't get there.

I wonder if

You have very limited time and resources to learn all the new strategies it will take to support the children, families and grow as an educator.

YOUR LEARNING SHOULD BE CONNECTED, PUTS THE PIECES TOGETHER & SOLVES PROBLEMS

This only leads to you creating less change and the kind of impact you work so hard for each day.

Not leave gaps and ADD more confusion

Hi there!

I'M VERONICA

I have the honour of supporting and cultivating communities of like-minded early childhood educators from all over the world. I am deeply influenced by the Reggio Emilia Approach which focuses on a strong image of the child, educator and family all while creating a learning environment that is a reflection of your values and principles as an educator. 

This approach has been an integral part of my 8 year journey as an early childhood educator through discovering how to listen to and understand our son through his sensory processing needs and diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder.

​Discovering the magic and power of loose parts along with their connections to aiding sensory processing, I have learned to understand behaviour as a form of communication and developed an early learning program that was inclusive and filled with wonder and curiosity for all children.

​Curating quality professional development for my fellow educators is a true passion and honoured journey. Within each workshop I carefully connect important theory from child development and share how I have made integral reflections that transformed my practice.

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.

This workshop was an absolute delight from start to finish. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing beautiful provocations being used authentically in a classroom environment. I'm such a strong believer in school being a place for children to explore real life, meaningful objects and this workshop allowed me to reflect on my own offerings and inspired me to take them to the next level. Amazing!

WHY IS THIS TOOLKIT PRICED SO LOW?

Inspiring, supporting and mentoring my fellow educators is my passion. Doing this through high quality professional learning is a must, but I also understand our industry and it needs to be affordable. I want you to succeed in your role and enjoy it too.
