Choosing Childcare

Deciding where your child will spend their early years is a huge family decision. We hope to invite you to consider some common options and what might best meet the needs of your child and family.

  • When are you planning to return to work?
  • What childcare options might work well for your family?
  • How do you share your parenting values with your child’s caregivers?

Healthy Eating

For many families just feeding everyone each day can get overwhelming. Whether you have a particular infant, a fussy toddler, or just trouble figuring out how to manage the old school clean your plate and dessert as a reward expectations, we are here to help!

  • How to build children’s senses of hunger and satiation?
  • What do you do when a child won’t eat anything healthy?
  • How do I manage the sweets, family members, and busy evenings?
2 sq - Healthy Sleep Routines

Sleep

Sleep is a biological need for both parents and children and yet we cannot force children to sleep. Sleep remains one of the fundamental struggles of parents.

  • How do I build healthy sleep habits?
  • Should I try sleep training?

Potty Learning

Young children’s first big step toward independence begins with learning to use the potty. It can be a difficult time for families as they eagerly encourage young children’s potty learning.

  • Is my child ready for underwear?
  • When do I introduce the potty to my child?
  • How do I handle potty regression and accidents that seem intentional?
