What ECE’s are saying

Over the past two years we have taken several online workshops with Dana at Words by the Sea. She provides loads of useful information/ideas that are relatable to all areas of our classroom. Dana makes the workshops comfortable enough to share our experiences and thoughts or just sit back and listen.

Words by the Sea is our go-to for online leaning and we look forward to in class workshops in the future 😊

We have attended multiple workshops with Dana Hodgins and they have all been fantastic! 

Dana’s workshops are informative, interactive and very worthwhile. Our students are aged 3- 5 and Dana’s content is developmentally appropriate and exciting for this age group. 

We have implemented many of the books, songs and games that Dana has introduced us to and found that the rhyming activities are exceptionally beneficial for the children’s early literacy and love of reading. 

Dana is passionate about the work she does- this is so evident in the way she presents so enthusiastically, whether virtually or in-person.

Hands down, our best discussions and professional development have been led by Dana.
