KEYNOTE

Richard Cohen

Richard Cohen, M.A. has proudly been an early childhood professional for over thirty years.Richard has traveled the world as a consultant, coach and motivational speaker and has been the Director of Turtle Island Children’s Center, a beautiful indoor/outdoor Nature Preschool that nurtures infants through preschoolers using a “nature-based emergent curriculum” approach.
“That was fantastic! My staff and I have never laughed so hard and learned so much at the same time.”
“I have a RAVE review! Richard has the knack of encouraging teachers to “do early childhood” the way it was meant to be. He had our adult educators laughing, thinking about THEIR childhood, and relating it all to providing an appropriate environment for young children. He encourages educators to think about enhancing their skills in a non-threatening way. He’s a super advocate for early childhood education!”
