"This (workshop) is especially good for parents without a teaching background. It was very well organized. I think it's a good approach to give parents time to try things out."

“This program provided me with specific information related to brain development that I can apply in daily activities.”
- Mother of a 3 year old
“I view my time with the children differently (after this workshop). I am more aware of what I can be doing that will help the child learn and grow. While feeding them I am thinking of something I can be doing that will help the child learn.”
