MAKING SENSE OF PRESCHOOLERS
Why can’t our kids come with an instruction manual? This is a common question in a world where we can feel inundated with parenting info. Sorting through difficult situations can be challenging and overwhelming. We just want to do the right thing – but what is that????
Join me as we explore child development and attachment theory in this practical online course, Making Sense of Preschoolers, designed for all those involved with young children: parents, early childhood educators, daycare providers, kindergarten teachers, and all the supporting caregivers.
LEARN THE SKILLS TO THRIVE, NOT SIMPLY SURVIVE THE TODDLER YEARS.
Get 4 video modules & 4 live online classes.
The course has been developed to fit into your busy schedule. Each week contains informational videos, live discussions, and take-home tools, leaving you resourced to understand and support your toddler.
We will explore how to:
- Understand the development of your toddler
- Address the big 3: play, rest, tears
- Unpack emotions, tantrums and, aggression
- Plan for action: what to do when…
As the parent, YOU are your child’s best bet, and my approach is to walk alongside your experiences, supporting you to see your child through a lens that is focused on connection and attachment. Together we will walk the maze, making sense of pre-schooler behaviours so you can thrive not just survive.

Week 1: Understanding toddlers.
Preschoolers can be untempered in nature, be characteristically inconsiderate, and have separation problems. Preschoolers need us to know how to compensate and set the stage for developmental resolution.
Week 2: Addressing the big 3- play, rest, tears.
Three irreducible needs that must be met for toddlers and parents to thrive not just survive.
Week 3: Unpacking emotions, tantrums and, aggression.
What preschoolers most need us to know is how to address the root problems and how to provide the conditions that help them to truly grow out of these common signs of immaturity. Three typical problems NOT to nip in the bud.
Week 4: Plan for action- what to do when.
In this module, the six most common mistakes are discussed and suggestions are provided for how to avoid these pitfalls with preschoolers.
We offer infographics, online resources.
Provided book list to correspond with each week’s content for you and your toddler.
