Bright Horizons Webinars: Parenting Tips & Resources

Did you know that Bright Horizons offers parenting webinars throughout the year? We partner with early education experts to offer guidance, tips, and resources to help you and your family navigate the many stages of childhood development and beyond. Because these education sessions are held virtually (complete with a chance to ask questions), they’re a convenient way to feel plugged into a parenting community.

In case you missed one or are new to Bright Horizons, here’s an overview of the six webinars we hosted in 2015!
