Host Kitt Chapman

is an all original songwriter and recording artist.  Trained as an Early Childhood Educator, Kitt thrived on teaching ages 2-5. As a mom and raising her own 3 children, she found song writing to be a most creative and rewarding outlet, and became prolific as a songwriter and recording artist.

Kitt was trained classically through the Royal Conservatory of Music syllabus on the piano, starting at 6 years of age. She also plays the guitar, ukulele, harmonica & fiddle.

Asked what inspired her to pursue song writing, she commented: "I thrive on creating music and lyrics, to ultimately enhance storytelling. Pre-schoolers have such a vivid imagination and to be able to tap into that space, brings me much happiness. If i can brighten & intrigue their musicality, even briefly...I've succeeded in my quest'!

Parents & teachers agree that once they've heard Kitt's songs, once or twice, the melody and lyrics are indelibly planted. A balance of educational and FUN!

9 Things by Maggie Dent


Pennington Publications, 2014 - Child care - 348 pages
https://books.google.ca/books?id=aeSzoAEACAAJ&sitesec=reviews0  Reviews
 

It is easy in our fast-paced, competitive, consumer-driven world to forget that children are not miniadults, projects to be managed or problems to be solved. This common-sense guide to parenting and caring for children under eight, reminds us that a child's development cannot be rushed, or crudely measured again milestones. It takes an entire childhood to grow and there is no perfect when it comes to parenting. In her informed, heartfelt way, popular Australian parenting author Maggie Dent takes a comprehensive look at the 9 Things that truly matter in raising children, and why they matter so much. She uses the metaphor of a wise aunty, Wilma - a voice of ancient wisdom that seems to be disappearing amidst the chaos. With passion, warmth and humour, Maggie draws on current research and her extensive experience as an educator, counselor and mother of four to guide parents and caregivers in their endless decision-making.
