Recent Participant Feedback!

  • "Definitely is a worthwhile training if you have infants up to preschool level to help them communicate between each other" - Greta C., Preschool Teacher
  • "That this class should be required for anyone who works with infants and toddlers before they start working. It would alleviate a lot of frustration for them and help to keep the enthusiasm and joy that working with this age level at a high level because it would give them a better understanding of these kiddos. Knowledge is power and for some is the key to preventing burn out." - Sharon T., Childcare Provider
  • "It's amazing! I love that we can interact without being seen/heard." - Childcare Provider
  • "I have ENJOYED all 3 of Raelene's webinars I've taken in the last few weeks & looking forward to future classes with her" - Childcare Provider
  • "Very helpful and lots of great ideas of how to work with toddlers and infants. Walked away feeling excited to try new ideas." - Childcare Provider
  • “Raelene's positivity and compassion about what she does is infectious!  My mood was pretty down prior to starting the class due to the current times we are living in, but has been turned around 100%.” - Childcare Provider
