Your Vibe Attracts your Tribe


Tanya is an intuitive, heart-led leader in Early Childhood Education.

For most of my life I have been surrounded by little people, whether it has been during my 18 years of working as an early childhood teacher or as a parent of my own 3 children.  I have worked in both home based and centre based early childhood settings. My pedagogy has it’s foundations in RIE and respectful care for infants, toddlers and young children and I am a play-based practitioner.

My passion has always been fostering the lifelong love for learning in children as well as working with teachers to grow them into the best teacher that they can be.  I am experienced in supporting and mentoring individuals as well as teams an building positive team cultures.

I would love to chat with you and find out how I can help. Whether you are a teacher needing mentor to move from provisional certification to full certification, a ECE leader wanting to build your leadership capacity or you would like to build your team culture and communication.  I can also help with workshops on:

  •  What respectful practice looks like for infants and toddlers.
  • Self regulation and social competency for infants, toddlers and young children.
  • The resilient child.
  • Internal evaluation and teacher inquiry.
  • Environments – why beauty matters.
  • Rituals in early childhood education.
  • The mindful teacher.

If you like what you see or would just like to chat, please drop me an email.  I would love to hear from you
