A few years ago, I delivered a series of workshops and presentations to parents, grandparents, and caregivers of preschool children throughout Eastern Ontario. It was a very successful pilot program and requests for expansion came from other communities in the far north and from other provinces. Teachers from these more distant communities chanced upon the Child Fairs, a part of this program at the time. Child Fairs brought together all related resources within a community so that families had a good understanding of what was available. And of course, there was face-painting, mask-making and fairy princesses dancing past on their way to read storybooks.

That’s what inspired this site. It is dedicated to all the parents, grandparents and everyone else who has a special child in their lives and especially to Chris, the craft lady extraordinaire. There are four main modules, activities and articles. If you have any questions, please email me. I’d love to hear from you!

Come back soon!
