Nurture your baby's development with simple, engaging play!
Learn how to become a confident, playful parent to your new baby without spending a fortune on new toys or spending hours on Pinterest!
So you've had a baby, but what on earth do you do with them all day?!
- You find yourself scrolling social media looking for easy play ideas to enjoy with your baby, but you're not sure whether they'll suit the developmental stage your baby is at.
- You feel like you're doing the same old thing together day in and day out so you want to find new and exciting ways to play with your baby so neither of you are bored!
- You're constantly buying new toys hoping that you discover that one magical toy that will keep your baby occupied for longer than 2 minutes...but instead you're wasting money on things that just don't capture their interest!
Your baby learns and grows so quickly in their first year, sometimes it feels like it's hard to keep up!
Someone much older and wiser has probably told you that 'they grow up so fast' and if you're anything like me, you're probably wanting to make the most of these beautiful years at home.
We know that play is how our baby learns and makes sense of the world around them...every playful experience builds a solid foundation for a lifetime of learning.
But how do you connect with your baby playfully AND stay on top of all the jobs on your to do list when you spend half the day nap trapped?!
Hey there, I'm Casey!
When I became a mum for the first time, I really struggled knowing how to play with my new baby. Even with a teaching degree, I felt completely and totally lost in how to nurture her development through play.
I caught myself in a *very expensive* cycle of heading to Target each week in search of the latest-and-greatest toys hoping that if I just gave her more toys, she'd play for longer. But boy oh boy was I wrong!
You see, babies are wired to play. It's how they learn about the world around them. And once we unlock the play potential surrounding us in our homes, we can provide our babies with the tools they need to learn and grow, all through the wonderful world of play!
Introducing the Baby Play Series!
An online series to support playful parents in understanding how to use play to support their baby's development all while having fun and creating magical memories to treasure for a lifetime.
Learn how connect with your baby using playful invitations that are sure to capture your baby's interests while supporting your baby's development. Let's take the guesswork away from playing with your baby!
Casey has helped me connect and be more present with both my kids.
I started working with Casey firstly for my 2 year old. We had welcomed our baby into the family and TV was the go to...I thought I had to have every new and sparkly toy
and now I see that the best toys are those that aren't toys at all (e.g. a cardboard box). Casey has saved my sanity!

This week I made my first discovery basket for my baby girls...we have been playing with the items all week!
The girls don't particularly enjoy tummy time...so I thought I would change the discovery basket up for them each day. They have stayed more content on their tummies! Even my older girls have enjoyed exploring the discovery baskets with their baby sisters!
It was so nice to see them both have fun, eat spaghetti and play together!
Today I set up my first sensory activity that both my boys could fully engage in (they're 3 and almost 1). Definitely making memories, thanks Casey!
Mum of two
You've got questions? I've got answers!
Not at all - each mini lesson is designed to be short and sharp and many are only about 10 minutes long. I'm a busy mum to three little people myself so I know what it's like to be juggling all the things - especially as a new mum! Each video is also captioned so you can watch on silent in the darkness of your room as you feed your little one to sleep. I've got you!
Not at all! In fact, I encourage you to use exactly what you have. There is so much play potential surrounding you in your home already and I can't wait to help you look at everyday items through the lens of play!
Of course I can also provide you with some inspiration should you wish to buy anything specific but I promise you've got everything you need to get playful with your little learner already.
This workshop is suitable for any baby up to about 12 months of age - yes even your newborn! What better time to learn how to support your baby's development through play than with a brand new baby in your home.
If you've got a little learner who is a bit older, you'd be a better fit for our Little Play Club membership. Find out more here.
As an early years teacher and parent to three little learners, I've had the privilege of working with thousands of parents across the world to inject more play into their days at home with their own little learners.
I'm so passionate about keeping play simple and love nothing more than helping parents find easy systems they can set up in their homes to make play enjoyable, fast and memorable.
I cannot wait to be a part of your playful journey too!
