"It’s a resource that I find that I will take with me everywhere. It’s not only just for early childhood educators – it’s for parents, it’s for community workers, it’s for everyone. The resource is user-friendly in that way, it really does allow any user to have access and I just love the fact that it’s online and it’s up to date and it can be accessed anywhere."
