Our story & Our Mission
Thank you for coming to our website and being interested in the story of Wonder Toddlers.
If you are here, you must be a busy parent or a teacher running after little cheeky toddlers : ) and looking for easy and simple solutions to your problems very quick.
Did I guess it right?
If the answer is yes, then Welcome to our place!
My name is Eva Matsumoto-Szentgyorgyi, Early Years and Parenting Consultant and the co-founder of Wonder Toddlers.
Wonder Toddlers’ mission is to give support to busy parents, who would like to get quick but effective answers to their toddler related questions, and who are not afraid to learn something new every day to make their children happier, more confident and reach their potentials.
We also welcome Early Years Professionals, who are looking for motivations, ideas and interesting articles about toddlers.
How did Wonder Toddlers come to life?
I used to work as an Early Years Teacher and later Room Leader in a big and very busy nursery in London.
Parents often asked my opinion and advice, but unfortunately, we had limited time in the nursery and parents were busy as well, so we rarely had enough time talk about the problems and come up with solutions.
Therefore, I was thinking about creating a website for parents, where I share my ideas and tips that I used and worked, so whenever they have some free time, they can read and learn about them.
Being determined to help parents and children somehow, come up with the idea of Wonder Toddlers and with my husband’s help and encouragement we built the website and we’ve been working on this project since then.
In the videos and eBooks and on some of the pages, you may come across with my illustrations, my little fingertips characters. Art is my other passion and I used to teach Art in primary schools at the beginning of my teaching career. Those funny characters are a reminder for me how joyful is to be with children and how wonderful they are.
Well, this is how it started and I wish to continue this journey with you to spread knowledge, experience, ideas and love for our children's brighter future!

What parents say:
Eva is excellent. Working with her was very helpful. It gave me a tool-kit to better manage my child and to better manage myself. Also, email-consulting was quite convenient; it saved me time and money (didn't need to call for a babysitter, and I didn't need to be off from work).Marie, Mom of 3-year-old
The consultation session was amazing and all the techniques Eva recommended have made such a significant impact. All things that seem so obvious now but that I would just never have thought of myself. Being able to do the sessions via email was brilliant. I am a single full time working parent, and it was much easier to schedule around everything. My biggest problem with my son was handling his aggressive behaviour, and with Eva's techniques he is much calmer and everything day to day is now much more comfortable.Amy, Mom of 2-year-old
My husband and I had email-consultation with Eva, and we wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone we know. Eva has a knack for coming up with the right explanation that brings a clear understanding to complex ideas. She “gets” parenting and she is very easy to talk to.Joe and Hannah, parents of 3-year-old
Eva is very professional, open and real. The consultation with her helped open my eyes to how to listen, which has completely changed my relationship with my kids. Now I know more about their development and know how to help them channel their energy.Karen, Mom of two, 2yrs and 4yrs
What my ex-colleagues say:
Does your room leader lead by example? Eva stays calm and thinks fast to sort every problem. She is inspiring and a great leader. She is very lovely towards children and members of staff. When Eva is around, I know nothing bad can happen. I love her circle times and I am learning from her every minute. She is very supportive.
How supportive of staff is your room leader? She always supports everyone, she is very helpful and listens to others. She never judges anybody for any idea and I can feel like myself. She is simply the best I could ask for my start in the nursery.
Does your room leader inspire you to do your work well and professionally? I am learning every minute from her and I feel challenged and motivated around her and do my best and work on myself.
Give examples of things that your room leader has done which have improved your practice: Helped me to build confidence and let the creativity go. Not to be shy and be more talkative. She helped me to keep on going and never give up.
