Educators' testimonials

"Liz Hicks is an amazing presenter and mentor. I appreciated that I was able to view such a quality presentation in my own time and that I was able to pause or re-watch something in order to take notes."

Jennifer Harnish

Infant Educator

Through the Years Day Care

"I enjoyed how comfortable Emily was with the topic (of children's sexual development). It instills confidence in my ability to be nonchalant and confident."


Shauna MacMullin

Early Childhood Educator

Point Pleasant Child Care Centre

[My goal is] "To look at my day to day, and rate every stressor on the same scale Amy used, in order to see where I can slow down, worry less and where I need better management. Bigger goal is to do this for my personal life and work life separately so that I know where to create a balance when needed to avoid compassion fatigue. "

Chloe Martin

Case Aid

Department of Community Services

"I can use these ideas to develop not only my program but children's well-being, independence and resilience. I can ask parents and families instead of throwing out some stuff they don't need at home, maybe they can add to our collection of loose parts. In this way, children are also familiar that it comes from home thus adding conversations between educators and children."
