Hey Mama! I understand how you're feeling.
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 that want to create magical memories of playtime while raising confident, creative little learners!
It's a membership championing PLAY!
Inside, there will be printable Play Packs full of activities and ideas for getting playful with your little learners! There will be masterclass video lessons exploring topics like toy rotation, small world play and encouraging independent, creative play! There will be exciting challenges with PRIZES and so.much.more!
PLUS 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!
The Little Play Club will be shaped by you, the founding members! Here are some themes we plan on covering:
The Play Portal
This is where you'll find all of the videos and resources as they're released each week! You'll find a Masterclass waiting for you ready to watch at your leisure!
The private Little Play Club community is where you can connect with others to gain support, share wins and find inspiration!
Your pricing will stay the same for as long as you stay a current member...but there are absolutely no lock-in contracts!
The Little Play Club is a brand new membership and community, so things might be a little messy and bare to start with. But this is the beauty of becoming a founding member. YOU will be able to shape what the Little Play Club becomes!
As a Founding Member, the weekly content will grow with YOU. The first piece of content will be released on July 24th with new content to be released weekly from there onward.
Each week, a new piece of content will be released! These ideas are not set in stone and will change over time to suit the members. Now is your chance to get in as a founding member and help to shape the Little Play Club!
Play Packs (worth $12/month)
Themed play packs to inspire your playtime and encourage the development of key skills such as number knowledge, letters and sounds, fine motor skill development, imaginative play and more! August will be Under the Sea theme!
Masterclasses (worth $37/month)
Each month we'll focus on a new playful topic, whether it be small world play or setting up engaging play spaces. This is where we'll explore the ins and outs of play and move you along your journey to becoming a purposeful playmate for your little learners! When you log in to your Play Portal, you'll find a Masterclass all about Play Schemas waiting for you!
Put your newfound knowledge into practise with simple playtime challenges every single month starting in August! By taking part in the monthly challenges, you'll also go into the draw to win some fantastic play-related prizes!
If you've ever caught yourself saying "I don't know what to do with the kids today!" then the Play Toolkit is going to be your new BFF. Each month you'll get new quick and easy play activities to try with your little learners.
Live Q&A Sessions (worth $97/month)
Got a burning question about injecting more play into your day? Ask them during the monthly live Q&A sessions. This is your opportunity to get some personalised support around your biggest play related challenges.
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!
I intend for the Little Play Club to become a $36/month community so TODAY is a wonderful opportunity to become a founding member and enjoy grandfathered pricing for as long as your membership stays current.
I cannot believe the instant change of the children's quality of play....they participated in play for longer than 2 mins!
I can honestly say, hand on heart, that I wouldn't have stuck it out only for your creativity, passion for learning and sheer honesty!
With some tweaks and less toys out, he's engaging in longer play and coming up with lots of different ways to play with his toys!
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. Your membership can be canceled 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 founding member pricing is only available for as long as your account remains in good standing.
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 Playful Path! It will walk you through the exact journey 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 of the Playful Path with activity ideas, masterclass videos, tools and mindset shifts to move you along that Playful Path!
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 creating the content for the Little Play Club, I had 2-5 year old children in mind! However, I am sure younger babies would benefit too.
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 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 neccistity. I'm confident that what you have already is enough.
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.
