Feedback on this course:

  • “I've worked professionally in childcare for 8 years now, and this was easily the BEST class I have ever attended on the subject. It was the perfect mixture of interactive material and lecture, and the instructor was so passionate and having so much fun that we couldn't help but have fun as well!”
  • "Raelene was amazing! I especially liked all of the examples that she gave. It's much easier to understand something when you are given a real life example that you may have dealt with yourself. Cheers for Raelene!"
  • This was an inspiring and refreshing online series. The benefits included feeling more confident working with toddlers and having a much bigger toolbox of tools to try in teaching them skills."
  • “Loved the presenter, topic, ease of webinar, I wish all trainings were offered this way. It seemed easier to be engaged and involved than in person. I seemed like I was more of a part of it.”
  • “Thank you, thank you, thank you. This was by far the best webinar I've done!! I LOVE your energy!! You can tell you love what you do!”
  • "The online series is great for picking up and putting more strategies in your tool box. You receive more ideas, ways of teaching these wonderful kiddos (toddlers). Also, for yourself, you learn you are not alone. We can all work together to gather new ideas, and what has worked for you, and now I can try that."

More about your presenter:

Hello!  I am Raelene Ostberg, the Founder of Thriving Together, and a passionate advocate for those caring fo toddlers for over 20 years! My journey with toddlers actually started as a struggling parent of a toddler.  Like so many parents and providers, I would tell my toddler “NO!” in one hundred different ways, only to see the behavior continue and maybe even intensify.  Thankfully, I was given the cherished opportunity to work with skilled toddler teachers in toddler classrooms at Early Childhood Family Education and even took the lead position in many toddler classes. Over the years, I have collected and used toddler-specific strategies to get the behaviors I needed and stop those driving me BANANAS!  Now, after 15 in toddler classrooms, collaborating with thousands of professionals a year, and a Masters degree in Family Education, I have a helpful toolbox of strategies (and insightful stories of success and failure to match). I now have dedicated my life to helping you and others who care for these special little humans.  Almost every helpful toddler strategy is collected into this six-hour series, with wonderful real-life examples!  I hope you can learn with us this spring for this wonderful series!
