Faculty and Professionals Sharing Insight

The Summit Speaker Series is designed to engage and enrich our parent community through presentations, discussions and advice from experienced professionals in child development on pertinent parenting topics. Parents are invited to join us for these events.

While we can all Google just about any topic and find volumes of information, sometimes what we need is dialogue. You are invited to the following:
