Michelle Winters, SleepWell Sleep Solutions will discuss with us Gentle Methods for Improving Sleep at Any Age

Are you losing sleep because your child is not sleeping?
Does all the sleep information out there overwhelm you?
Do you want a gentle and respectful solution to your child’s problem?

Michelle will answer your questions and provide useful information for caregivers and parents.  


Meghan Leahy, Parent Coach will present on the Nanny / Parent Relationship, specifically all working together as a family unit in caring for the children.  This workshop will discuss how nannies and parents can be on the same page when it comes to issues with the children and the job.  

Debra Dennis, Healthy Nannies 4 Healthy Kids / Indigo Lifestyle Solutions   will discuss with us the relation between food and food allergies, behavior and learning in children.  


Food, Mood and Behavior 

Debra Dennis, Founder 

Healthy Nannies 4 Healthy Kids™
a division of Indigo Lifestyle Solutions 

All children behave in a less than desirable manner every now and then. It's normal for children to act up when they can't have their favorite toy or when they just need a nap. However, if behavioral problems disrupt both classroom and home time and the child you care for just seems all-around miserable, it may be time to look into the hidden cause of behavioral problems.  

This presentation will help you demystify the common foods that trigger mood and behavioral challenges in children.  You will walk away with knowledge and tools to support you in making a sustainable difference in these children’s lives, yours and those around them. 

Patti Cancellier

Raising "I Can" Kids : A child's "I Can Quotient" is a more important indicator of being able to thrive in life than the traditional IQ.  Attendees will learn strategies to increase a child's sense of feeling connected, capable, competent and courageous!  

Patti Cancellier is a certified Parent Educator and the Education Director of the Parent Encouragement Program, a nonprofit parenting education organization in the Washington area.  She has been teaching parenting classes for PEP for over 20 years and has been giving talks in the community at schools, community centers and workplaces for 18 years.  She has a Masters in Public Health in health education, but her most important credential for teaching parenting is that she has raised a daughter and a son to adulthood.
