Simone Davies


In this enlightening live Q&A session we’ll explore the crucial role of observation in understanding and fostering your child’s development.

Learn how to attentively observe your child’s interests, behaviors, and responses to different stimuli, and use these insights to choose activities that not only engage but also contribute to their growth and learning.

Simone will guide you through practical techniques for observing your child in various settings and demonstrate how these observations can be effectively translated into selecting activities that align with their developmental stage, interests, and needs.

Discover how being a mindful observer can lead to more meaningful, enriching experiences for both you and your child.
