THE PARENTING EXCHANGE

Welcome to our virtual workshop series, The Parenting Exchange! Developed exclusively for Bright Horizons® families, these multi-session workshops are designed to provide more in-depth, interactive learning opportunities in a small, intimate setting. Not only will you connect with an early education expert, this is also a chance for families to connect with each other and expand your parenting village.

Join Family Education Coach, Claire Goss, as we tackle common parenting questions and challenges together.

Each 45-minute workshop is a live, interactive learning experience and will not be recorded. 

Please note, each workshop topic is offered twice per month and each workshop is a two (2) part session. For example, if you sign up for the first Challenging Behaviors workshop in Jan, part one will be held on Thurs 1/12 followed by part two on Thurs 1/19, which will build on concepts learned in session 1. We encourage you to keep this in mind when signing up so that you can get the most out of these events.
