Like a mother's group {full of experts} in your ear!

Have you ever wondered about tips for 'tantrum taming', preparing your child for school, knowing 'what to do' with certain age groups, suggestions for toy storage to encourage more purposeful play or wanted ideas about what a 'typical day' looks like in early childhood?

As a Mum of 4, an award-winning teacher and someone SUPER passionate about the importance of play in the early years, I know how daunting it can be to try to do the *right thing* for your kids - and yourself as a parent (or carer).

My aim with the Podcast is to connect you with experts to help brighten days with young children - and to help you get PLAYFUL!

Each episode of the Play Squad Podcast we bring you a new person or message to educate, empower and inspire you to unlock your child's potential in PLAYFUL ways!  Each episode is around 15 minutes each, giving you just enough time to plug and play - and get a job or two done in the process!
