"I have known a lot of early childhood educators 
and Richard is one of the very few I feel in awe of.
He's the person I call if I need to talk about children's needs because he's straightforward, articulate and
understands the whole being of the child; what the deep child is about, not just the surface stuff that everyone else sees."

- Bev Bos
