The Open Door supports the carers of young children in creating meaningful childhoods.
We bring community together in celebration of each other and the natural world; support early language and literacy development through creative play and storytelling; and consult with families on their child's developmental journey.
CONSULTING & TUTORING

She has over 12yrs experience as an educator, educational program designer and teacher-trainer - working both locally and internationally in best-practice schools and NGOs.

* understanding and minimising challenging behaviours using positive strategies and creating peaceful environments
* encouraging positive social interactions and secure self-esteem, especially in times of transition eg beginning school, moving home, family separation
