Kristen RB Peterson

B.A. Education and ECE
Host of the Play Based Learning Podcast

Kristen RB Peterson (B.A. Education and ECE) is the founder of a play and nature based preschool and forest school in central Minnesota, host of The Play Based Learning Podcast, and a good troublemaker in the field of early childhood education. She shows up in life authentically and is real with her audience. Her presentation style can best be described as a conversation with a best friend. Funny and dramatic, she captivates adult learners with stories that can be applied to the life of any early childhood professional. She leaves ECE professionals motivated to take risks to better serve the children in their lives.

Kristen's Keynote:
Trust the Children and Your Cape
Fear. Fear holds us back from doing what is right for the children we serve. Fear of what others will say. Fear that we will look like less of a teacher if we don't have control and the children in our care aren't quiet. Kristen will inspire attendees to release the fear and to trust their cape as they head back into the world to care for children
