Welcome to the wonderful world of Golden Days at Home - the playful preschool curriculum

As the mother of five children, all grown and on their own now, I work to share what I have learned along the parenting path, knowledge gained from my studies, as well as my research and experience working with young children. For myself, when it comes to parenting, I can honestly say I did my best when my children were young. But, looking back I admit that I would choose to do some things differently. I am now on the other side of parenting young children and humbly offer wisdom, resources and a 20/20 hindsight perspective in an effort to support young families through the fleeting yet foundational stage of early childhood. I am eager to assist parents in their desire to provide and protect a nurturing home environment for their young children, enlighten and inspire the practice of conscious parenting and encourage parents in their influential and honorable role. 

Human beings were built to need connection with others. Children and adults alike thrive in safe, close relationships allowing them to feel calm and accepted. It is how our brains are built. The connection between parent and child is crucial for the healthy development of young children. Without this bond, children often experience problems with behavior and have difficulty dealing with emotions and new situations. The effects can carry on right through childhood into their adult life.

Parents have the critical role of consciously developing pathways for connection with their child. Patterns set up in early childhood form the basis of future relationships. Creating consistent, safe, intimate opportunities for engagement opens these pathways for connection, essential to a child’s health and well being. Inspired by the parent/child need for connection, which from a child’s perspective must include fun and play, I created the Golden Days at Home early childhood weekly lesson plans as a trusted and reliable resource for conscious parenting. It is also known as the playful preschool curriculum!

Those who prioritize early parent/child connections enjoy a loving and engaging relationship. Not only can this affect families individually, but envision the constructive impact the next generation would have on our world if we all commit to prioritizing the parent/child relationship. To bring forth a kinder and connected generation who can think critically and make better decisions is achievable. We are experiencing a moment in time when our country strongly needs this. Parenting is powerful and choosing to practice conscious parenting empowers children now and throughout their life. 

To support conscious parenting, I have developed the Golden Days at Home playful preschool curriculum aiding parents win their desire to cultivate more meaningful connections with their child or children.

I want to gift you a free downloadable lesson plan to get started!

I appreciate the importance of quality time with children. Through Golden Days at Home, my mission is to provide parents with not only a playful preschool curriculum but also a trusted and lighthearted resource for at-home education for their children age 3 – 5 years. Each weekly lesson plan includes nearly 20 different subject lessons and activities specifically designed to encourage a child’s growth and kindergarten readiness. Through this unique at home opportunity, children move through their cognitive, creative, emotional, and physical development naturally, guided with love.
