... The ways in which pedagogy and practice are woven throughout these exceptionally thoughtful videos, visuals and reproducibles enables educators and their teams to weave best practices into every moment of respectful relationship with the children in their care and with each other.

I am grateful to have experienced this inspiring course and would highly recommend it to all educational professionals across Australia, in every country, and in the U.S., in every state."
