The next intake is February 2020
Hey Mama! I understand how you're feeling.
You want to inject more PLAY into your home but you don't know how to prioritise or make time to be playful with your child.
You enjoy creating play experiences but your child loses interest quickly.
You want to create beautiful play spaces for your child but you don't know how to make the most of the space you have.
I have so been there before!
As a first time mum, I suffered a serious case of the guilts. I felt pulled in so many directions, distracted by the dishes piling up in the sink and the mountain of clothes on the dining table.
I felt like I was failing my baby and I wasn't providing her with the very best start. I knew how important play was. I knew it was a wonderful way to connect with my baby but I had no idea how to play with her and how to provide her with play experiences to aid in her development.
I just wanted someone to hold my hand and show me how! I wanted to be shown how to set up an inviting activity that would develop her oral language skills. I wanted to know how to set up a play space that encouraged independence and creative play.
I just wanted to learn everything I possibly could so that I could not only develop a beautiful connection with my baby girl, but nurture her into a confident, creative and happy child.
Now I'm a confident, playful mother to three little people and I'm here to share my playful path with you!
The Little Play Club is for parents of children from birth to age 5 that want to create magical memories of playtime while raising confident, creative little learners!
It's a membership championing PLAY!
Inside, there are printable Play Packs full of activities and ideas for getting playful with your little learners! There are quick and easy masterclass video lessons exploring topics like toy rotation, small world play and encouraging independent, creative play! There are exciting challenges with PRIZES and so.much.more!
There's also the most amazing, supportive and encouraging community of like minded parents and educators who all champion play! This is the Mother's Group you always wished you were a part of!
"I joined the Little Play Club as I wanted to get back to being present in my play again and be involved with a group of like minded people...Learning about the play Schemas has given me huge insight into E’s past and present play. Wish I knew about this earlier!" - Tamara
The Little Play Club is shaped by you, the members! Here's some of the topics we have covered and plan on covering in the coming months!
The Play Portal
All of the videos and resources are loaded into the Play Portal as they're released each week - and you'll also be able to access everything from the previous months!
The private Little Play Club Facebook community is where you can connect with others to gain support, share wins and find inspiration! This is also where the play challenges take place!
Your pricing will stay the same for as long as you stay a current member...but there are absolutely no lock-in contracts!
Each week, a new piece of content is released! Some months there are even surprise bonuses because being a member is pretty special!

I have such an incredible vision for what the Little Play Club will become. Think of it as the play-lovin' mother's group you always wished you were a part of!
Before I joined the Little Play Club, I never knew the true meaning of play. I thought children just played to entertain themselves as they are left on their own....
But I finally learned that playing is our children's way of learning.
I look at their toys differently, I now find it as their own little tool as they explore and learn!
The play pack has been amazing. Can't wait to see what else we'll get up to this week, and for the coming months too.
I love that the play packs give me direction for his play and takes the guess work out of what to plan!
I decided to just push back bedtime an hour and just get into play...and WOW is really the best way to describe it!
We had so much fun and even though I was tired, I forgot about it.
I can't wait to play more tomorrow morning. Thank you Casey for reminding me to make time to play!
Every now and then, a new bonus is added to the Play Portal! Check out what you'll get as an added surprise when you become a Little Play Club member!
Play Planners (worth $19)
As a teacher, I have a deep desire to plan and organise! There's nothing more satisfying than having a beautiful plan to help me organise my thoughts and ideas!
Inside your play planner, you'll find printable pages to help you plan out your month, week or day! There's printables to help you plan an activity for every day of the month or to get your creative juices flowing to plan themed learning experiences for different learning areas like sensory play, fine motor skill development and nature play! However you like to plan, there's a printable in this download to support you!
I have learnt so much in my years of teaching and parenting. In fact, I developed my Playful Path which will support you in your journey from being an Eager Explorer (someone who is excited to start!) to a Purposeful Playmate (someone who confidently creates engaging play experiences and spaces). The Little Play Club has been designed around this Playful Path - so if you're working through the materials and resources as suggested, I just know you're going to LOVE being a member of the Little Play Club.
However, if you find that it's not for you, please do get in touch. While your membership fees cannot be refunded, there are no lock-in contracts and you are free to leave at any stage with absolutely no hard feelings. You can even cancel without having to contact me directly so there's no awkwardness! Your membership will then end and you will be removed from the Play Portal and Facebook Community.
Wonderful news! There are no lock-in contracts so you're free to cancel your membership whenever you like! Just keep in mind that your current member pricing is only available for as long as your account remains in good standing.
YES! While some of the membership perks are only on Facebook (like the wonderful private Facebook Community, monthly challenges and live Q&A sessions) you can still join the fun by downloading the Play Packs, Toolkits, Bonuses and watching the Masterclasses and replays of the Q&A sessions over in the Play Portal. However, some members have specifically signed up for Facebook just so they can make the most of their membership!
Us Australian's are a friendly bunch and we welcome members from across the globe! Just remember the membership price is shown in AUD so just check your bank doesn't charge fees for handling international currencies. Also keep in mind that the bulk of our members are in Australia so the live Q&A sessions are scheduled for that timezone.
Yes, you can certainly find lots of inspiration and ideas across the internet - but they will not give you the proven process for injecting more play into your family. The Little Play Club is different!
I've developed a step-by-step process for getting playful with your little learners - this is my five stage journey comprising of five different playful stages. It will walk you through the exact steps I took to become a Purposeful Playmate and confident parent to my own little learners. I'll be there to support you through each stage with activity ideas, masterclass videos, tools and mindset shifts to move you along your play journey!
At the end of the day, we all want to raise happy, confident, independent children and that's what we're going to do together in the Little Play Club!
Yes! The Little Play Club will still be so worthwhile for anybody that values play!
Throughout the Little Play Club, we'll be covering loads of different topics and themes. Some of which may not be immediately relevant to you, but the monthly themed Play Packs and Play Toolkit activities are going to save you SO MUCH TIME and take the guess work out of getting playful with your little learners!
Oh my goodness, no! Not at all! The Little Play Club community is a supportive, encouraging environment. Nobody will be made to feel inferior. As parents, we are all doing our very best with what we have available to us at the time. I can say with 100% certainty that you are a wonderful parent because you care. And that's all our little learners need at the end of the day! I'd love to welcome you with a big hug!
When I first began planning the Little Play Club, I had 2-5 year old children in mind! However, we have lots of younger babies in the Little Play Club enjoying lots of wonderful play with their older siblings! I also include simple play ideas inside the Play Packs to include younger children.
Oh mama I know exactly how you feel. There are so many balls to juggle as a parent so why would you want to add another? Well I have wonderful news. The Little Play Club releases one brand new piece of content each week which will be added to your Play Portal for you to access when it suits you best.
To give you a rough idea, the Masterclass sessions are approximately 20 minutes in length and the live Q&A sessions are approximately 30 minutes in length. These are the only pieces of content that you need to consume and both are added to your Play Portal for you to access when it suits you.
You're free to use the materials whenever you like and you don't need to follow along with everyone else. It's totally up to you!
You're free to cancel your membership whenever you like with no lock-in contracts or hard feelings!
However, your monthly or yearly fee gives you access to both the Little Play Club Play Portal and the Little Play Club Facebook Community - so when you cancel your membership, you'll also lose access to these. You can join again later, but you will pay whatever monthly/annual fee is in place at that time.
Not at all - in fact I encourage you to make the most of what you have! Of course I can make suggestions of things to purchase that will help you along your playful journey but it's not a necessity. I'm confident that what you have already is enough.
Many parents head to their local library to borrow books for the Play Pack each month and others love borrowing toys from their local toy library to keep things fresh and exciting! When planning the Play Packs and Toolkit activities, I aim to keep them as simple as possible using materials and objects that most people already have in their house.
I am so happy for partners and husbands to be added to the community so that you're both on the same page! Only one login per purchase can be created, so unfortunately they will not have access to the Play Portal.
Other family members, work acquaintances, your mother-in-law or that one mum you chat to at play group each week cannot be added to the community. They will need to purchase their own membership.
