“Nimbly, Simply, Confidently, Naturally”

“Nimbly, Simply, Confidently, Naturally”

For over 20 years Dorothy Marlen has been a free lance trainer, workshop leader and author supporting carers and parents of very young children. Her early training was as a Steiner/Waldorf early childhood professional. She helped to start the Lancaster Steiner Education Initiative when her son was small (he is now 30), running groups and workshops for parents and writing a book on parent and child group work. From 2008 onwards, Dorothy trained in the Pikler approach, subsequently co-founding the Pikler Association which she chaired for 7 years, while organising Pikler trainings in the UK. In 2019 she became a Pikler pedagogue with the European Pikler Association. In 2016 Dorothy created with Crossfields Institute, and now leads, the Level 3 Holistic Baby and Child Care Diploma. This runs through Emerson College. This course synthesises Steiner early childhood pedagogy, the Pikler approach and the UK governments statutory requirement, with a unique 0-3 emphasis. For many years she was the Birth to Three representative on the Steiner Waldorf early childhood steering committee. In York, where she lives, she has pioneered and run for 11 years a model of parent and baby group work inspired by her Steiner experience and the Pikler approach. Dorothy Marlen has written about this work, especially natural motor development in early years magazines and book chapters. She also offers consultancy to nurseries, especially care in baby rooms.
