Hi, I’m Holly
I am a Pediatric Occupational Therapist and mom two sweet (and very active) toddlers. After working in clinical practice for over 10 years and raising my own small humans I am more convinced than ever that play is the most undervalued and misunderstood tool in our parenting toolbox.
Childhood development in the early years is critical in establishing a firm foundation to become a responsible, healthy and kind adult. The way we mothers structure our toddlers days (from what toys they play with, to how we act to co-regulate their emotions) become the building blocks for their development.
I want to make child development accessible and easy to understand for toddler mamas. I am passionate about making the little years fun, lighter and more colorful for mothers
How to access the membership
Playful Pod will work for you even if...
You don’t have time
Playful Pod is designed to reclaim your time. Time looking for activities, time trying to entertain your toddler and instead give you time by providing practical tools to get your toddler playing independently for longer.
You have a small home
Snap! We will be actively brainstorming how to create space for play in even the tiniest of homes playful.
You don’t like messy play
While we will have some sensory bins and messy play ideas, we will always give you easy hacks for simple cleanup or alternative ideas.
You work full time
Great! All trainings and LIVES will be capped at 30 minutes and have replays available. The ideas and support you will get in Playful Pod will equip you to maximise your treasured time with your little and lighten some of the mental load.
You don’t have a big budget
Playful Pod is designed to save you $. From those costly target runs just to escape the house and emergency more toys that you don’t need just to get through the day.
You don’t have fancy toys
Me neither! There are base common toys that we will be using like blocks, animal figurines etc. But generally we will use things you can find in nature or around the house and will always give you alternative ideas.
You are outside of the US
No problem. The LIVE calls will all be pre-recorded so if they fall on a bad hour for you you can catch the replay and send me your questions ahead of time.
Your child is chronologically older than 4 years but functionally fits the toddler years
Welcome! I am sure you will gain so much from the child development trainings as well as the community support.
You don’t have Facebook
The only part of the membership that is hosted on Facebook is the group threads and monthly play challenges. Otherwise everything will be run through the membership side of my site.
Good news! There are no sticky contracts here. With the monthly membership you pay for each month on the 1st and can cancel anytime before that if you want. With the yearly contract, you can cancel after a year.
I get it! Facebook is not everyone’s cuppa tea. That is why only the weekly threads and play challenges are hosted on Facebook. Everything else happens through the membership portal.
Playful Pod is very uniquely designed around the development of 1-4 year old kids.
You are absolutely free to cancel at any time, no hidden costs or bad feelings. However this will take away your access to the membership portal and facebook community.
Time is such a scarce commodity with little ones around. Trust me I understand! That is why I like to keep things to-the-point and digestible.
The training videos will be between 20-30 minutes and the LIVE deep dives will be capped at 30 minutes. These are also loaded to the members portal so you can watch at your convenience
I would love to answer them- email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Unfortunately because of the digital nature of this product, we do not offer refunds however you can cancel at any time.
