“Thank you so much for this conference. I gained so much confidence in what I’m doing and can do with my children. I have two littles under two and our youngest was born during the pandemic which has made play and family adjustments so challenging. I really have to capture the time I have with my toddler when I get it and now I feel like I have way more tools in my toolbox. The conference was well organized and easy to access. The variety of speakers was fantastic and I loved the inclusion of their own “mom” experiences. I can’t thank you enough!”

what other parents are saying about the conference

Meet the hostess

Wasn't Play Supposed to be the easy, joyful part of raising small humans?

Hi, I’m Holly and I am your hostess for the Reignite Toddler Play Conference. I am a Pediatric Occupational Therapist and mom two sweet (and very active) toddlers. 

After working in clinical practice for over 10 years and raising my own small humans I am more convinced than ever that play is the most undervalued and misunderstood tool in our parenting toolbox. 

Childhood development in the early years is critical in establishing a firm foundation to become a responsible, healthy and kind adult. The way we mothers structure our toddlers days (from what toys they play with, to how we act to co-regulate their emotions) become the building blocks for their development.
