Welcome to Joyful Toddlers!

This space is about increasing our enjoyment of the young children in our lives through concrete action and by adjusting the lens through which we view them. My work comes out of LifeWays, which is inspired by Waldorf education. I welcome your comments, and questions about increasing your enjoyment of the children in YOUR life.

One Week till Teleclass Starts

I spent the day today working on the course content for my teleclass Joyful Days with Toddlers, and I'm really excited!  It's going to be a great course, perfect for anyone who spends their days with children ages 1-5.  It will be a combination of online discussions and weekly conference calls, along with video footage from my own home daycare Rainbow Bridge (see an example to the right).  The first class is next week, and the first week's topic will be Life as the Curriculum.  The video footage is simply priceless.  Have you ever thought about baking with toddlers, but felt a overwhelmed by the logistics of it all?  You can see me doing it live.  Have you wondered what 18-month-olds are really capable of, or whether a five-year-old boy would be excited to have his hair brushed while sitting on your lap?  Those will be there too.

In addition to the practical aspects of how to make it happen, we'll examine the ideas behind it.  Why does helping with household chores feel fulfilling to young children?  How does it help with brain development?  Why do we as adults tend to have resistance to it?  We'll look at all of these and more, with a different topic each week: social skills, transitions, mealtimes, space, and being your best self.  We have a great group of women signed up, and I'm excited to see them connect with one another as we explore these issues.

There are still a few spots in both the Sunday section (with calls 2pm-3:15pm Mountain Time) and the Tuesday section (calls 6:30pm-7:45pm Mountain Time), so if you're interested sign up right away!  I'm offering it at the special introductory rate of $150 for the six-week course.  I'll be offering the course again in June, but prices will go up.  For more information, click on the tab above titled Classes With Miss Faith.  To hold your spot, email me at faithrainbow@yahoo.com.  I hope to hear from you soon.
