Supporting Health in Childhood Through an Understanding of Developmental Stages: A Parent Education Talk by Sarah Hearn
This talk will address aspects of the developmental stages of childhood and provide a pictorial guide to understanding the growth of the child’s physical body and inner experience from birth through adolescence. As parents and caregivers, these understandings can help us to recognize which stages are healthy, and when a child may need extra support. Through our observation of these in daily life, we can help bring balance to times of one-sidedness, expressed as physical symptoms and/or challenging behaviors, in order to strengthen and nourish the child’s focus, stability, and overall wellbeing. We will look at practical ways to do this within the family. By working with the developmental stages, we can understand how the choices that are made now can help lay the foundations for the future health and wellbeing of the child.

We have been given a greenhouse by Board member and farm education enthusiast Kevin Curry. It is the time of year to start seeds inside, but we've got a little more work to do before it will be able to keep our baby plants snug and warm. Mr. Riley will be available from drop-off to pick-up on Wednesdays and grateful for as many helping hands as he can get!
