Identifying the need behind the behaviour, setting and implementing healthy boundaries between you and your child is vital in the development of self-regulation and emotional intelligence. Learn how to foster self awareness and empathy through daily practice of mindful and conscious parenting. 

Purpose begins in your child's life in the infancy stage as they observe and navigate the world around them. Raising a whole brain child  relies on opportunity, experience and practice.

Learn how to create a engaging environment and routine with your child  that supports and encourages their internal need for purpose and independence through practical life skills an dynamic play. 

We are given only one mind and one body in this life and it is our responsibility to care for them. Learn how to nurture your child's connection between mind and body and give them the opportunity to discover their best self through experiences which build on their established feelings of self-worth, imagination, exploration, humility and persistence.



My name is Laurie Joy Kingwell and I am an Early Childhood and Parent Educator based out of Vancouver, BC. 


Joy in The Home is my labour of love. 

From my earliest memories, I have had an instinctual pull towards the care and well-being of children. At this point in time I can without a doubt say children and youth have been my life's work. Joy in the Home, was founded in 2014 and each day I feel grateful that my purpose collided with my passion. My mission is to provide parents, educators and caregivers with the support and tools necessary to build a secure foundation for our young people by creating opportunity's and the guidance to evolve into the best versions of themselves.


With over seventeen years total  experience as an Early Childhood and Montessori Educator, Group Home Youth Worker and Parent Educator through Joy in the Home, I have gained invaluable expertise involving children’s and youth development.

In 2015 I was honoured to be chosen as a speaker for the Seven Mile Beach TEDx talk. My talk titled 'Your child’s best chance at discovering their best self' is an effort to communicate the critical misunderstandings we have as adults and the role we play in our children's lives.

"Joy in the Home did wonders for our family! Laurie came into our home and spent a few short hours guiding and coaching us on how to best handle certain situations with our daughters aged 4 and 2. One of the specific strategies she suggested was the "calming cushion" each time one of our daughters was having a meltdown. My husband and I implemented that strategy instantly and I was shocked by how quickly the girls caught on!...Laurie has a true passion for helping families, her knowledge and intuition are second to know and children absolutely love her! I would highly recommend 'Joy In The Home' to any families seeking guidance with what to do with their spirited little ones."
