Ruth Fidino began her career in parent education 30 years ago at Pierce College in Tacoma, Washington as a parent education instructor, facilitating both group and individual parenting sessions. At Bright Horizons, she continued her work with families and crafted our first parent workshops that were delivered by center directors. Ruth also been a frequent contributor on the podcast series, “Teach. Play. Love. Parenting for the Early Years” as well as family webinars. She is also an experienced facilitator who involves the audience in the process of developing practical solutions that will work for them. Through the experience of raising her own children and now the joy of grandchildren, Ruth has discovered that one of the most important ingredients of parenting is to be open to discussion of new ideas and approaches.
