Parenting Support

Parenting seems to be increasingly complex and challenging as a greater number of responsibilities are being placed on children and their caregivers.

The Child Development Academy is dedicated to helping families effectively navigate these demands, connect with their family, and explore their children’s interest.

We use expertise and relevant research findings on child development, learning, parenting, behavior change, and motivation to support you and help your child flourish.
