Meet Nell Regan--Founder of Rhythms of Play

I never felt like I was ready to have kids. I hid my desire to have my own children in many of the career choices I made. I was an au pair (nanny), a teacher, a coach, and an ocean lifeguard ready to save the world… yet, I still felt unworthy of motherhood.

Once my dreams of having a child came true, I quickly found myself exhausted and overwhelmed. I wanted to do fun activities with my daughter and spend quality time connecting with her, but I had no idea how to fit it all in. Once I began implementing rhythms of play into our lives, everything began falling into place.

If children learn through play, and rhythms are the routines and tasks we complete daily and weekly; think of motherhood as the time that we spend guiding our children through the rhythms of their youth... Rhythms of Play.

If life is a school... The world is our playground! 

Playing with your children is never a waste of time. -Nell Regan founder of Rhythms of Play
