Who am I?

I am Julie Sizemore, creator of RESPECT Care Teaching. I am a wife and mother of two children. I have been in the field of early childhood education since 1999 in many different capacities. I have worked in home based child care, center based child care, been a home visitor, and a community liaison.

Currently, I work full time as a lab instructor at the Phyllis Fratzke Early Childhood Learning Laboratory (ECLL). In the evening and on weekends, I provide in person and online training focused on infants and toddlers for the early childhood community.

I am a fierce advocate for treating infants and toddlers with respect and educating people on developmentally appropriate practices.

If you have questions regarding situations you are navigating with children, families, professional development,

or any other topic related to early childhood

What does RESPECT Stand For?

Re-Thinking Environments

Changing your environment can change the way children engage. I can help you reimagine your space so that it works for you not against you.

Supporting Professionals in Early Childhood

The field of early childhood serves children from birth to age 8.

I specialize in infants and toddlers, but I am here to support anyone who works with children in early childhood.


to care teaching

Care teaching is simply a way of interacting with infants and toddlers. It promotes the idea that infants and toddlers are people to do things with rather than objects to do things to.
