Ready to stop overthinking about your planning, working all weekend and scrolling socials endlessly for ideas?

I got you.

If you are:

🌈 A kindergarten educator

🌈 Spending too much time planning

🌈 Feeling a little (or a lot) burnt out

🌈 Ready to feel excited about teaching again

And you're looking for:

🌈 French and English play-based resources

🌈 Simple but engaging activities and ideas

🌈 Support and real connection

🌈 Systems and routines that really work

Then you're in the right place!

A Playful Purpose is all about helping YOU re-ignite your love for early learning by removing the stress of searching for resources and planning for play-based learning. By implementing simple systems, reliable routines and not re-inventing the wheel, you can leave work at the bell and leave your prep to prep time. Sound too good to be true? I thought so too. But after years feeling burnt out and on the brink of stress leave, I finally realized that teaching didn't have to be like this.

Now that you're here, I'll show you the way.
