Purposeful play and a play-based learning environment is essential to the development of the whole child. Whether you are a teacher who wants to breathe new life into your classroom or who would like help making some small shifts in your practice we are here to support you. We are available to support your growth and development as an early childhood educator through 1:1 modelling, small group PLCs, offering workshops, as well as sharing current research and resources.

How we can help

In addition to the general offer of service, we can offer various supports to this subject including helping you:

  • Support with developmentally appropriate practices for the early childhood environment

  • Support with choice of materials and resources for the kindergarten classroom

  • Support with physical classroom set-up

  • Modeling of lessons for specific topics (Play 5, Zones of Regulation) and general play-based activities (loose parts)

  • Support with interventions for specific students and/or situations
