About the Author

I am a mother of two and work part-time as a teacher and Extra Lesson practitioner.  I have made these resources to inspire parents to create varied, real life play experiences for their children.

I am dedicated to helping parents understand the effects of screen time on limiting healthy child development. I volunteer my presentations to community groups and have lots of free resources for parents and practitioners at my website.

I believe I am working against a growing trend for childhood to be spent indoors, propped up, strapped into car seats and strollers, or plugged in to electronic entertainment. Children must be active in their bodies, exploring and mastering the physical world around them to fully achieve their potential.
