  1. Hello, I just want to say hi and thank you for this wonderful podcast. I am a podcast addict and this is the best podcast for early childhood play that I have come across. I started listening when my blogging friend Debs from @Learn_with_Play was featured, and now I’m hooked!

      Hi Kylie,
      Thanks for the feedback. It’s always lovely to hear from listeners.
      The interview with Debs was so much fun talking about playdates. She’s so calm and reassuring with so many easy to do ideas.  
      I’m following you on Instagram and enjoy your pics.
