At Raise Toddlers, we understand that raising toddlers can be extremely challenging and leave you feeling outright exhausted. Through an evidence-based approach, we will help you tackle the overwhelm and equip you with all the knowledge needed to navigate raising happy children from birth to six years old.

Toddlerhood: A stage when everything can feel like a battle of the wills

Like when:

You simply want to get them changed and they crocodile roll away and absolutely refuse to wear pants!

You offer to help when they are screaming for help and they suddenly push you away saying ‘me do it!’

You ruin their life by giving them the wrong-coloured cup after they asked for that
exact colour!

You may find yourself wondering how on earth to weather the storm of toddler tantrums, toy tussles, hitting, biting and toilet training (or lack thereof)!

Perhaps you are even wondering if some of your toddlers’ feelings and behaviours are normal. I’m sure you want to know:

  • How to respond
  • How to teach appropriate behaviours
  • How to help them with all their feelings without ending up in tears yourself and
  • How to raise a good, well adjusted, resilient human

Toddlerhood - We are here for it! We've got your back with a scientific framework to support and guide you.

Toysort &
Playroom Set

Let us create a beautiful play space in which your little one can thrive.

Play is the work of childhood! Children need a designated place to play just as much as adults need a home office.

Too often we hear, my child has hundreds of toys and plays with none of them. Our goal is to use our knowledge of child development and our experience as qualified Early Childhood Educators to create an environment that removes any hurdles to quality, self-initiated and deeply satisfying play for your little one (meaning you get some time to yourself too!)

Parent
Consults

Sometimes we all need a bit of reassurance or to gain a bird’s eye view on a situation in this parenting gig (yes even us!)

Toddlerhood can be a complex time, and sometimes it can feel like you are stumbling around in the dark and waiting for the light at the end of the tunnel. In our personalised online parent consults, we love nothing more than turning on the flashlights in any relentless toddler situation. These sessions will provide you with information, backed by research to support your daily interactions with your little one.

Talks &
Classes

We could talk about toddlers all day! Whether you are a parent or work with toddlers, we would be happy to come and clear the air on all things toddler development in order to help you to support their behaviours, feelings and play.

We love offering talks to parent groups, community groups, mother’s groups or daycare centres.

We also offer a range of parent-toddler play classes both indoors and outdoors in nature. These are released periodically, so keep your eye on our socials for more information.

Our Story

Raise Toddlers exists to carry parents through early parenting, as they raise their children from birth to six years old. Let’s face it we are tired, so busy trying to keep our kids alive and trying our best not to stuff them up! This makes it near on impossible to find the time to fuel ourselves for this most important role of parenting. Toddlerhood can be a stressful and overwhelming phase.

I recall lovely people telling me to ‘hang in there’ as this phase would pass. 'What only 3 more years to go,' I’d think, it felt awful just surviving and wishing the days away. I’m so glad I searched and found a new way of viewing my toddler and thriving through the days together instead.

Raise toddlers was birthed out of my own experience feeling like I was epically failing at being a parent to a toddler. No story you could tell me about your day with your toddler would cause me to flinch, never mind shock me as I have been in your shoes.

Our entire team has! We are here to walk with you!

Testimonials

"Mandy’s genuine support, passion and wealth of knowledge have been so evident in our interactions. Her insight into toddlers is truly valuable and has had a real and practical impact on my parenting. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough!"

- Laurike

"Mandy was so helpful with organising our play spaces in our house, especially the decluttering of our toys. Such a good idea when you either don’t have the time or just don’t know where to start. She also gave us some ideas to help with toilet training which has taken a lot of stress off of us."

- Jessica

"Mandy was AMAZING in a time of need & helped me see out of the fog of “toddlerhood”! She was vulnerable, honest & drew from her own personal experience as not only a qualified professional but also as a “mum”! I will continue to recommend many friends to her community. Thanks Mandy xx"
