ABOUT US

Raise Early Childhood exists to inspire and equip anyone who is caring for children 0 to 6 years old to see the child from a fresh new perspective. At the core of our work is respect for each child, and the relationships we build with them from birth. We believe the early years are so vitally important, as they lay the foundation for each child's future and therefore the shaping of society. We aim to advocate for childrens' well-being by empowering parents and other caregivers to perceive and interact with them as competent human beings. We are inspired by the work of many of the great early childhood researchers in history such as Maria Montessori, Magda Gerber, Emmi Pikler and Haim Ginnott.

Mandy Richardson

Mandy has always had a natural passion and love for children. This led her to pursue a career in Early Childhood Education, followed by working with children and their families in a variety of community settings. She went on to complete her Masters in Human Services (Childhood Studies) in 2016. Mandy is currently undertaking a PhD in Respectful Parenting Methods. 

Mandy has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience having been actively engaged with families in the community for over 15 years, but credits her greatest lessons to the experience of raising her two young children with her husband. 


"respecting a child means treating even the youngest infant as a unique human being, not as an object."
