Bridget Malherbe
Early Childhood Educator and Kids Yoga Instructor

Movement has always been supportive of Bridget’s well-being and development and after discovering yoga and mindfulness in 2017, her life has been greatly enhanced. This led her to complete her kids-yoga teacher training and integrate more mindfulness into her school classroom. This together with her love for learning, connection, play, and creativity, lead to the birth of Little Tree Yogis. Her yoga classes with Kids Collab are more than just a physical practice. Bridget incorporates movement, mindfulness, breathwork, story-telling, and positive affirmations which support and aid the holistic development of the child.

Francesca Esposito & Kelly Gruber
Hello Life- Registered Dieticians

Kelly and Francesca are Registered Dietitians in private practice, both treating a wide variety of conditions in their personal capacities. Since becoming mom’s themselves, they have become even more passionate about helping other mom’s to nourish their little one’s bodies. This led to them starting their company, ‘Hello Life.’ Physical activity and nutrition play such an important role in children’s development and milestones which is why Hello Life is very proud to be part of the ‘Kids Collab’ team.
