Little Partners was born out of my passion to help nurture the essential partnership between the parent and child. The essence of this special partnership is expressed beautifully by Rachel Carson in her book The Sense of Wonder, “If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder…he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in.”
When my daughter, Hanna was 15 to 18 months old I observed her strong innate drive “to do it myself.” She was curious about everything and constantly exploring the world around her! Knowing Hanna was capable of doing a lot of things on her own ---washing her hands, slicing a banana for snack, rolling out dough---I wanted to provide her with a safe environment to do the things she could and wanted to do. After exploring step stools on the market, I realized there was not a safe stool that met the needs of the young toddler. To solve the problem, I created The Learning Tower, an adjustable height platform, offering quality, safety and flexibility.
Today, The Learning Tower is distributed around the world and enjoyed by young toddlers everywhere as they safely explore, discover and experience the world around them!
