Technology is everywhere today.  With its many forms and uses, our children are growing up immersed in tech!  How do we balance the needs of young, growing minds and bodies and still make the most of the digital resources around us? Join us as we share information about how active, hands-on activity influences children’s brain development and how you can nurture and support your child's development as they explore, learn, and grow in our tech-rich world.  Many resources will be shared.
