Jules is a Parent Play Coach

She is a mother of 2 toddlers and 1 pre-schooler. She understands the difficulties of raising children in the 21st century – competing priorities, work, running of the household and being the best mother for your kids.

Jules specialises in teaching parents to effectively engage with their children.

“My 2-year old wants to play with me all the time.”

And you don’t have time nor energy to set up more activities. You’re feeling guilty and frustrated because this precious childhood is flying past right before your eyes.

Buying fancy new toys don’t seem to work either. It feels like a never-ending cycle because your kids are still bored or distracted.

No need to feel guilty for the “screen time” or frustrated by the lack of time and energy.

With Jule’s Playful Parent Academy, you can learn how to be more effective with the precious time you do have with your kids so that you can have more quality time with them. This downtime or leisure time could become the most productive time for you and your children once you know how to.

Jules Three-Step approach has you covered.

Jules' 3-step program gives you the tools so that you can CONNECT with the most important little people in your life through play, CREATE LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES and JOYFUL MEMORIES, and CELEBRATE and ENJOY this wonderful season of motherhood with your young children.

Understand Your Child

Know your child's learning style vs interests vs developmental stages and where they are in development. Jules shows you how to use their interest to design a perfect environment for play.

Prepare the Environment

A well-prepared environment is like having another teacher on board. It's like having another pair of hands to look after your kids. Jules will show you how to create an ideal environment for play and leverage that environment to foster unstructured play.

Know Your Role in Play

Did you know that there are four roles in play? Jules helps you understand the different roles so that you can flow between each of them: Observer / Stage Manager / Guide / Playmate.

Helping you raise creative kids who enjoy playing for hours independently.
Giving you the peace of mind.

Jules is based in Perth, Western Australia where she is a stay at home mum looking after three lovely kids all under three years of age. Jules is a qualified preschool teacher. While she absolutely loves the privilege of staying at home to watch her girls grow up every single day, she misses her job as a preschool teacher.

As time went by at home, all of the knowledge, skills, experience and passion Jules brought to work in the field of preschool education percolated into Stories of Play on Facebook, Instagram and as a website so Jules could share her passion for the hows and whys of preschool PLAY. Jules is a passionate advocate for providing the best preschool play for all kids, which is why she developed and teaches The Playful Parent Academy so every parent can learn how to give their little ones the very best start in a life full of wonderful memories of a magical time.
