PARENT CONSULTATION AND SUPPORT: (suggested ages: 0 – 6 years)
Be your own “Baby Whisperer”…
At Wholeplay we believe in guiding and supporting parents to be their own best experts. For this reason, our Parent Consultants do not try to “fix” young children, but rather support parents to develop the knowledge and skills they need to tackle everything from getting their baby to sleep through the night, to taming their toddler’s temper tantrums, to helping their preschooler make a smooth transition to kindergarten, to supporting their gifted child’s unique style of learning. All Parent Consultants have at least a Master’s degree in psychology, early childhood development or a related field, as well as a wealth of experience working with parents to support the healthy development of their young children.
“I know this sounds kinda corny but seriously, our lives have been transformed now that you’ve helped us teach him to sleep. It’s so great!” – Miranda
