Conversations to Inspire

Conversations to Inspire... a series of ten minute podcasts that will offer thought and opportunity for discussion. Although they are primarily aimed at parents and guardians of younger children, they will resonate with people of all ages.

For each of the podcasts provided, there will be a more in-depth, live chat available and is part of the Parent Connect program. You will see a short description of the video content and the live discussion date by each one. If you miss the live discussion on the particular topic, you can connect the following week at the same time and feel free to talk to Kathy directly. The first three are a "trilogy" and based on the books by Kobi Yamada and the fourth is on resiliency.

The podcast LIVE specials are currently scheduled for the following dates, the podcasts themselves will be made available on this page and YouTube a week ahead:

Parent Connect

Parent Connect Live runs every Thursday at 10 a.m. via Zoom and is an opportunity for parents and guardians in and around Devon to chat and connect in a safe, respectful space.

Parent Connect is part of the Indoor Playground program, which is unable to run at this time due to Covid restrictions. It is run by volunteers and without them we would not be able to host it. As soon as possible, this program will be up and running again and the Parent Connect Live will be reviewed, however, the podcast sessions will continue throughout the year and the live sessions will occur in the evening instead.

What do you do with a problem?


What are problems for? They challenge us, shape us, push us and help us to discover just how strong and brave and capable we really are. Even though we don’t always want them, problems have a way of changing us in unexpected ways. This podcast, hosted by Kathy C, will give you an opportunity to think about problems in a different way and how you might want to talk about them with your child. You can also join her for an in person chat about this and many other topics on Thursday mornings at 10 a.m.

What do you do with an idea?


What do ideas become? Big things, brave things, smart things, silly things, good things! Everything you see around you was once an idea! Let’s think about how we can help our children push past doubts and criticism from others and allow their ideas to grow. This podcast and live chat series aims to inspire new thoughts, ways of looking at thing & spark conversation. Hosted by early childhood expert, Kathy C., this is a chance to think about something differently.
