About

IMG_6783.JPG

Hi! I'm so happy you've found us here at The Blue Umbrella Collective! 

 

After years in the classroom, I transitioned to provide training and support to parents and educators. I found two things: everyone was looking for more information, and I was only able to help a limited number of clients (since I haven't yet found that elusive 8th day of the week). 

 

The Blue Umbrella Collective Magazine is made up of many specialists providing information on topics relating to education and development during the early/childhood stages.

 

Below you will find The Collective, parents, educators, and therapists. Click on the contributor's picture to go directly to their website and find more of what they offer!
