Hi, my name is Katie and I am a mom to three amazing boys.  Most days you can find me in my yoga pants having a tea party on the carpet, refereeing a nerf gun fight, or eating cookie dough on the couch.

As an Early Childhood Educator, I know that our little ones learn best through play.  I’m a huge fan of open-ended toys that encourage creativity and problem solving.  Even more- I love coming up with new and exciting ways to use toys we already have to give them new life.

I made a big decision a little while ago to leave all the “perks” of working with the school board in a Kindergarten classroom, to open my own home-based learning centre.  Yep- I quit my job, left my pension and benefits behind to be my own BOSS.  It has been a wild ride; but I could not be happier!

I am so passionate about play-based learning and I just love to share my ideas, thoughts, and experiences to inspire others and maybe even help them on their journey; whether your a parent, teacher, or both! I love connecting with others so feel free to email me with any questions you may have.

Oh, I almost forgot…  the bonus about working from home??  I get to wear my yoga pants EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

Katie Engel
