Hello!  I am Kayla, the owner of Parenting Expert to Mom.

This is me and my beautiful bouncing baby boy! Before my little guy arrived I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Special Education Birth to 21 as well as my Masters in Education. For six years I worked as an Early Interventionist serving children and families from birth to age three before becoming a stay at home mom to be with my son.

Much of the work I did with children was actually by coaching parents and childcare providers on strategies to use with their children to help their development progress. After 5 years of giving parenting advice to others, I became a parent myself when I gave birth to my son. Hence the name “Parenting Expert to Mom”. What I learned through this experience is the strategies that I was using as an Early Interventionist work well with ALL children.

So why did I start Parenting Expert to Mom?  Honestly, even though I LOVE being a stay at home mom, I missed connecting with families and learning more about child development.  Everything on this site has been created because of my experiences working with children as an Early Interventionist or are things that I do with my son (usually both)!

3 Things I believe:

  • Parents are their child’s BEST teacher.

  • Learning through daily routines and play is what works BEST for babies and toddlers.

  • Parents NEVER stop learning!
