ABOUT LAURIE JOY
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. 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 tools and supports necessary to build a secure foundation for a young people to become the best versions of themselves. With over sixteen years of experience as an Early Childhood and
Montessori Educator along with Group Home Youth Worker and Parent Educator I have gained invaluable expertise involving children’s and youth development. I am excited to share my knowledge and look forward to working alongside parents and Educators across Canada.
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.
