"Excellent facilitator, experienced and enthusiastic, gems of wisdom, one of the best instructors I’ve had after seven years of university. Seriously, this woman knows how to teach!" – Alicia Jinkerson (North Vancouver), November 24, 2006.
"Wonderful workshop. I have a greater understanding of early language and literacy acquisition through song, rhyme and stories. I will take what I’ve learned here and incorporate it into my daily/weekly work with young children." – Juliana Niebergall (Vernon), February 24, 2007.
"Jane really inspired me to use imagination, body language and facial expression to deliver the Mother Goose Program to parents and children in an interesting way that can help them to connect with each other meaningfully in their daily lives." – Teresa Tao (Vancouver), June 2, 2007.
"I learned lots of rhymes, bounces, chants, and have much more confidence in how to deliver a program to infants, toddlers and preschool children. Jane did a fabulous job and had an excellent rapport with the participants. She made us feel comfortable and the two-day workshop flew by." – Thomas Long (Vancouver), June 2, 2007.
"I thought this was a wonderful workshop – one of the best I have ever attended. Jane is wonderful – so gentle and energetic and full of love for the people she works with. An inspiration and lesson for us all." –Elspeth Bowers, Mission, BC, September, 2006.
"I have been doing programming to children for only 6 months, so I found this workshop to be a treasure trove of information – rhymes, how to perform the rhymes, how to teach rhyme and song, how to learn and tell oral stories. Jane empowers each participant to try something new. I'll try hard to incorporate songs in my programming. This workshop has given me so much information and confidence!" –Linda Madill, Abbotsford, BC, September, 2006.
"I learned how to help parents and babes/little people connect, skills for parents, and a non-intrusive approach to family support." – Ursula Watt, Pender Island, BC, June, 2006.
"I hoped to connect with other agencies and possible facilitator partners and I did! I learned wonderful usable stories and songs and practical information for setting up a prograrm. Jane is a truly gifted facilitator." –Ruth MacIntosh , Victoria, BC, June, 2006.
" What a superb role model Jane is! It would be great to see you hold regular workshops, be it Mother Goose, or even just communications with children, storytelling . . . anything. You’ve got so much wonderful stuff to share " – Janine Kostelnik, Whitehorse, Yukon, October 2006.
