I have been having families ask who I am, my background and certifications! I am so glad when these questions are asked. This shows that families are wanting classes taught by individuals who have knowledge, passion and desire to provide vetted information! Please keep asking these questions, make sure that you are feeling comfortable with who you are taking programs from. At Little Hands & Me Parenting Network, I strive for high quality programming which means continuously updating my knowledge on topics that matter most to your family!

Here are a couple of my key training and credentials:

✿ Bachelor and Diploma of Social Work- career focus in parent-child interaction and child development (University of Calgary and Mount Royal University)
✿ Certified Positive Discipline Parenting Educator (Positive Discipline Association)
✿ Certified My Smart Hands Instructor
✿ Curriculum and Core Training with Growing Great Families
✿ Growing Great Kids program
✿ Social and Emotional Development Training
✿ 1,2,3 Magic- parenting course
✿ Effective Communication with Parents – Bow Valley College
✿ Mental Health First Aid- focus on Maternity Mental Health
✿ Ages and Stages Questionnaire Screener
✿ Baby Wearing Educator

Each year, the Social Worker’s association requires a minimum of 40 hours of professional development. This allows me to stay up to date on information regarding child-development, parent-child interaction, and parenting!!

For this year, my main adventure is completing:

✿ Sensory Enrichment Therapy Certification Course

✿ Compassion Course (Non-Violent Communication)
