You’re Invited

At the beginning of each month, you'll receive an email notifying you of that month's topic and inviting you to register. You'll then receive a link, via email, to join the conversation via Zoom videoconference.

If a childcare provider, preschool, or Sunday School teacher had concerns about your child’s development or mental health, how would you want them to initiate a conversation? Or shouldn’t they? Diane Kim asked this question on her Facebook page and was inundated with responses. Join us on November 20 as we talk with Diane about this sensitive subject, what should and should not be said, and how to serve the child and family well.

Register, below, to have the Zoom videoconference link emailed to you. 

We look forward to seeing you online on Wednesday, November 20!
