In our busy lives, finding the time and the right words to talk with our children about their learning is trickier than you might think. Children these days can struggle to know what to say when you ask them about their day. Often, this is down to us asking the wrong questions in the wrong way.

The solution is simple - but subtle and – it is always to hand, in fact it is at your FingerTIps

Think how empowering it would be to have the words that work to talk together, reflect together and grow together with your children.

"Examining the quality of caregiver interactions and child well-being and involvement in infant and toddler group care broadly defines my research interest. Specifically, I am interested in care routines with infants and toddlers in group care as a main tenet for developing the caregiver-child relationship. I earned my BA in Human and Social Development from the University of Victoria, M.Ed. degree in Early Childhood and Elementary education from Antioch New England University and Ph.D. in Instructional Leadership and Academic Curriculum from the University of Oklahoma-Tulsa, with an emphasis in early childhood education. Before completing my Ph.D., I was an instructor at Selkirk College in the Early Childhood Education department, worked as a kindergarten classroom teacher, parent and child class facilitator, and educational assistant. I am an active member of ZERO-TO-THREE, Resources for Infant Educarers (RIE), and the European Early Childhood Research Association (EECERA)."
