I offer conference presentations and workshops which challenge and inspire. I am able to communicate with a wide range of audiences with warmth and passion, generating enthusiasm and action.
I bring new levels of understanding and awareness to the care of the very young child.
Here are some themes I have presented:
- The challenge of childcare in the 21st century
- What does conscious care look like
- Seeing babies and infants with new eyes
- The crucial importance of self-initiated movement and play
- Why children don’t crawl and why it matters
- New insights into early child development
- How to create calm and happy child care settings
- “Like home” settings – why these are best for very young children.
