Hey Beautiful Mama, I’m Amanda!
I strive to help mamas of toddlers & preschoolers have peaceful, relaxed days full of playing & exploring. My goal is to help you find SIMPLE child-led activities so you can raise independent, confident children who love learning.
Before becoming a stay at home mom, I was a teacher. I have a BS in Elementary Education and AA in Early Childhood Education.
I designed my programs because I couldn’t find a child-led, play-based curriculum that didn’t take hours to plan & prep. I wanted to be able to follow my child’s unique curiosities without spending hours planning.
Now I’m sharing my program with you, so you can gain back QUALITY time to play, explore, and learn WITH you little.
What Our Customers Are Saying...
“This is wonderful! I mean, none of the activities are ground-breaking — well, maybe to a toddler they are! — but it is organized and easy and laid out in such a way that it is doable. There are just so many ideas floating around out there that I found it difficult just to get started. This helped so much! I was able to gather materials and get started without fussing too much or worrying about covering more. Having the list of materials was great and let me get things laid out ahead of time. He’s loving it so much and I’m loving being able to focus on having fun with him rather than trying to figure out what to do and stressing about putting it all together. We get to a couple activities each day along with songs and reading, so I’m not feeling overwhelmed by the amount of things to do or the time needed to do them. It was money well-spent. Thank you again for putting this all together!”
Amanda; The Toddler Experience Mama
“I was struggling with all the ideas for and demands on a little one that’s out there. When I came across Nourishing Small Minds, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to commit to the program, but I loved the idea of child-led themes. Since starting with Nourishing Small Minds, my little one looks forward to the day’s activities. I love that it’s always available and I can pick and choose the activities that I know my little will enjoy. It’s such a relaxed way of teaching your child the basics. The program has such a positive and colorful vibe too.”

“Before purchasing The Toddler Experience, I had trouble knowing what was age appropriate for my son. I struggled with knowing what kinds of things to do and how to do them. When I came across Amanda’s curriculum, I wasn’t sure it I’d like it. I’ve seen a lot of curriculums out there, and most of them seemed too concept based instead of experience based. I chose The Toddler Experience specifically because my son is a very physical boy, so he doesn’t sit well. Amanda’s program incorporates learning through experience and doing rather than a more traditional sedentary approach to learning.”
Lacie; The Toddler Experience Mama
“I joined because I was looking for structured system that worked. Just in the first week I saw amazing changes in learning, playing and even behavior in my little one 4 years.”
Alena; Nourishing Small Minds Member
“I appreciate Amanda and The Toddler Experience because it is the only curriculum I could find meant for toddlers to be used by a parent at home rather than in a childcare setting. It’s incredibly well developed and has so much to choose from that one can easily find something that will appeal to their individual toddler’s interests and abilities. I love that a million ideas that I could have spent hours rounding up online and then spent additional hours figuring out the best way to implement them, are already here and organized for me, which is just what this busy mama needed.”
Jessica; The Toddler Experience Mama
“I do it with my 2.5 year old son! It’s been great. I probably spend about 30 mins a week setting up my materials. It makes it super easy and new stuff is added all the time. There are good courses to teach you, the mama, how to better teach and set up. Love how it really grows with my child, his abilities, and his interests. The creator Amanda is super supportive and responsive to questions and requests. I love the community of mamas we have with it.”
Halie; Nourishing Small Minds Member
“We are loving the preschool curriculum! The body unit was AMAZING and my boys learned so much! Having a curriculum makes it so much easier for me to jump into topics they are interested in without spending hours trying to prepare on my own.”
