Terrific Toddlers Course Poster

"I think your webinars/recordings are such a fantastic idea. I contemplated taking a class, but the times for the classes through any of the organizations in Calgary seemed difficult to manage on top of everything else. A webinar format that I can access at any time is very convenient. Thanks for offering the Terrific Toddlers course in this way." - M.V.
