Eloise Rickman is an author, parent educator and founder of A Beautiful Childhood. She works with clients around the world through online courses and coaching. Her work focuses on evidence-based parenting, home education, and helping families find more rhythm and ease in their daily lives. Extraordinary Parenting (Scribe, 2020) is her first book.
Eloise is a trained doula, and previously studied Social Anthropology at Cambridge University where she first became interested in how childhood and family practices shape society. She believes that parenting can be a radical act, and that changing the way we raise and educate children has the potential to shape and change society for the better.
Influenced by the Montessori and Waldorf approaches, amongst others, and trained in Nonviolent Communication and Sociocracy, Eloise works in a non-judgemental and empathetic way to hold space for parents to find ways for themselves and their children to get their needs met.
Eloise lives in South London in a sunny little house full of books with her husband and young daughter, who has been home educated from birth.
