In a continued effort to make the 2008 Liddle Kidz "Touch Tour" the most inclusive and engaging in history, Liddle Kidz Founder Tina Allen, and Delaware's very own Patty Draper, Founder of September Mornings, have rolled out a series of official events open to parents and professionals in the Wilmington, Delaware area.

Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) July 18, 2008 -- After travelling more than 3,500 miles and visiting fifteen different cities throughout the Pacific Seaboard, the Rocky Mountain West, the Midwestern region and Western Canada, the Liddle Kidz Foundation will be arriving in Delaware at the half point of their innovative and certainly most auspicious 2008-2009 Liddle Kidz Educational North American "Touch Tour" - the first infant and pediatric massage tour in the nation. In a continued effort to make the 2008 Liddle Kidz "Touch Tour" the most inclusive and engaging in history, Liddle Kidz Founder Tina Allen, and Delaware's very own Patty Draper, Founder of September Mornings, have rolled out a series of official events open to parents and professionals in the Wilmington, Delaware area.

From the beginning, Tina Allen with her Liddle Kidz Foundation (LKF) has been a woman on a mission. With each infant and Pediatric Massage Liddle Kidz Foundation Pediatric Massage North American "Touch Tour" Buseducational offering the petit visionary has endeavored to create an experience of lasting worth and substance for her students. At various points in her career, she has not only worked with and treated those of all ages from the adult non-ambulatory to the terminally ill and the frail elderly, but also hospitalized infants and children. Allen has chosen children around the world, arguably the most important to focus her work on - although success in her own mind is purely conditional on the caliber of the Foundations work. "We have no interest in being the largest educational training organization of our kind if we aren't the best. That's the only way being the biggest would mean anything", says Allen.

Ultimately, what's set LKF apart is the visionary passion of the Founder and the organization's contemporary and modern brand of educational trainings, which mixes the latest information based on up Tina Allen - Liddle Kidz Foundation Founderto date research and tried and true methods based on Allen's own experience within hospital and healthcare settings, or working directly with parents themselves. These educational sessions also offer a comprehensive and information packed segment on modern marketing which will enable students to succeed in their new ventures.

LKF is managing to become a world wide educational phenomenon without sacrificing credibility.

"In an industry where you're trying to create a new mold, you have to adopt a do-it-yourself work ethos if you want to succeed", says Allen. "Travelling around the globe teaching isn't for everyone, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I guess I like to romanticize the impact of education and the benefits that my students can have on those around the world. Although, I am a realist and I know I can't do it on my own - it does take a village of caring people doing their part to make a difference."

Details on each special activity and event in the Delaware area are provided below. While these events are open to the public, registration for the educational trainings is required. Additional information is posted on the Liddle Kidz Foundation website.
