Webinar: Parents and Experts Agree: Kids Thrive in Home-Based Care

Join Home Grown on Wednesday, June 15th at 6:00 -7:00 PM Eastern (3:00-4:00 PM Pacific) for a webinar featuring a panel of experts, providers, and parents that will be discussing how home-based care meets the developmental needs of children.

Last month, Anne Vilen, writer and supporter of home-based child care, interviewed parents, experts, and even children to learn about why children thrive in a family child care setting. Everyone agrees: children thrive in a home-based setting. Join the conversation to hear how home-based care is beneficial to a child’s development and how you can support home-based care providers as parents.

Panelists include:
-Laura Jimenez Parra, Doctoral Candidate and Family Child Care Researcher
-Benu Chhabra, Home-based Child Care provider leader (Concord, CA)
-Pamela Childress, Home-based Child Care provider leader (Aurora, IL)
-Lisa Kemper, Parent (Concord, CA)

Moderated by Anne Vilen, writer and past home-based child care parent
