This great family shared their holiday tradition from Crema, Italy. We learned about St Lucia and her donkey. We shared delicious Italian treats and made bundles of hay for St Lucia’s donkey. The next morning the hay was gone and in its place was this sweet donkey we have named “Crema”.

That moment when you’ve peeled off the winter layers and awe your friend in a matching shirt!


Happy Diwali!!


Our busy and beautiful classroom!


Art journaling! Years ago I had a family that worried that the majority of what their child did in the classroom was art. That wasn’t entirely accurate but we practice a lot of art in our classroom. Our art program is lead by the very amazing , and we have added to our art talent with Claudia Rivera on staff, but more than just having great artists as teachers we know that art has enormous benefits-
Strengthening and refining fine motor skills, emotional regulation, creative expression, and as a means to consolidate and showcase both new and previous knowledge. And guess what? It’s so fun and satisfying!


Mixed age classrooms are the absolute best! I love in the third year of primary, our “kindergarten” students are not the youngest, but the “elders”! Daily they model peace, hard work, helping others, and how to get along. I captured this beautiful moment where the elder friend quietly offered support and comfort to the younger during story time, but tens of such moments occur everyday and while they don’t get captured on here, they are written on my heart ❤️!

We love witnessing the joy and pride in our readers!


This simple shift helped me avoid unnecessary arguments and miscommunications with my child. 🙌🏻

👉🏻 It's so easy to react when our kids:

😤 push back against our limits
😤 ignore our requests
😤 argue about everything

But children don't become more agreeable when we become defensive or agitated by their reactions.

If we can practice ⤵️

🔆 acknowledging our anger
🔆 letting go of assumptions
🔆 choosing to be curious
🔆 adjusting our tone

- we can create the emotional safety our kids depend on and need to thrive. Not sure what this looks like when you're trying to keep your cool while juggling a million tasks?

✨ Visit the 🔗 in my bio to get your Conscious Communication Cards.



There is so much more to behaviour than most people think. Children don’t try to upset us, there is usually something behind it. They are communicating their need through behaviour. If we look behind the behaviour we can see a child who is doing the best they can
