“Effective communication, respect and a sense of humour is the oil that lubricates a good family”


Christina Damhuis, BA

“I believe that everyone can learn and reach their potential with the right tools and support. It all starts at home, with parents educating their children and parents need support, too!”


Shoshana Hayman

“Parenting is a process of becoming who we need to be for our children. We need to extend to our children an ever-widening invitation to bring all of who they are into their relationship with us so that they can grow into mature and independent adulthood.”

“Turning the science of child development into the art of parenting”

"Loving, nurturing and protecting children comes naturally to parents and by combining love with the science of child development, you can make the best parenting decisions for your children. The latest research shows that by teaching your children life skills you give them the tools they need to live happy, healthy and fulfilling lives."


Deb McCollister

"Throughout my career, I have advocated for open-ended play in the lives of children and worked to help families understand the relationship of imagination and discovery to human development. I encourage families to protect time for children to simply “be”, to watch the clouds or follow an ant trail, to wonder and mentally wander, to day dream, to refresh their spirits, to reveal glimpses of who they may become!"
