Hi there folks! Im Jane and have over ten years of child care experience including training in Montessori, Waldorf , and RIE (Resources for Infant Educators) . My jobs have varied from in home nanny, preschools, nurseries and group care in my home with children ages 6weeks to 10 years. One of my very favorite quotes from my best teacher Magda Gerber, founder of RIE, is "Active toy, passive child. Passive toy, active child." and I believe in that with all my heart. With a focus on natural play, emotional development and respectful communication, I find that children feel safe to fully be themselves while in my care. In my free time I like to study all things plants! I am currently studying clinical herbalism and have been practicing whole plant medicine on my own for years. I also enjoy foraging and cooking wild food. When I'm not studying I Read more spend lots of time practicing primitive skills and nature based art such as basket weaving, dying with plants and anything involving wool!
