Raise Early Childhood exists to inspire and equip parents as they navigate raising children from birth to six years old. Early parenting can be stressful and overwhelming at times and our passion is to promote parent confidence during these vital early years. We apply a evidence based approach to assist parents to manage their own stressors and better understand their children’s behaviours and development. We also provide support to both parents and early childhood professionals in promoting a natural childhood through research in natural play. We are inspired by the work of many of the great early childhood researchers in history such as Maria Montessori, Magda Gerber, Emmi Pikler and Haim Ginnott.
We run both indoor and outdoor natural play and parenting classes, group parenting workshops and home playroom ‘sort & set’ services in Perth, WA. We also provide online support through group forums, one on one consults and webinars.
Mandy is the Director of Raise Early Years. She has always had a natural passion and love for children. This led her to pursue a career in Early Childhood Education, followed by working with children and their families in a variety of community settings. She went on to complete her Masters in Human Services (Childhood Studies) in 2016. Mandy is currently undertaking a PhD in Respectful Parenting Methods.
Mandy has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience having been actively engaged with families in the community for over 15 years, but credits her greatest lessons to the experience of raising her two young children with her husband.
"respecting a child means treating even the youngest infant as a unique human being, not as an object."
