    NPN is pausing most events in July. Stay tuned for developmental differences programming in August and school-search events in September!




    

If there's anything parents of little ones have, it's questions. About sleep. About feeding. About how to cut those impossibly tiny fingernails. On Wednesday, June 30, Chicago pediatrician Dr. Anita Chandra-Puri will be on hand to give you answers. Visit NPN's Discussion Forum and post your question on this thread. Dr. Chandra-Puri will reply the same day with an answer. Feeling embarrassed about your question or want to maintain your privacy? No problem. Anonymous posts are welcome. Dr. Chandra-Puri will post all of her answers to the thread so everyone can learn and benefit.
 
Anita Chandra-Puri, MD is a physician associated with Northwestern Medicine. Her primary specialty is pediatrics and her practice focus area is newborn care. Dr. Chandra-Puri is also on NPN's board of directors.
 
NPN's Discussion Forum is for members only. To ask Dr. Chandra-Puri a question, join now and use code AllAboutBaby for $25 off.

Choosing childcare that is right for your family can seem like an overwhelming process, especially in Chicago where there are so many options to consider. This session will focus on daycare centers—private/family-owned, corporate and in-home. In this intimate live discussion, we will discuss safety, curriculum, daily activities, enrollment/finances, student-teacher relationships and transitioning into group care comfortably. There will be time for parents to ask questions at the end.
 
You will walk away from this discussion with a better understanding of the following:
 
1. What daycare in a group setting is like for your child
2. Important considerations for parents, including safety and finances
3. How to help your child prepare for daycare and more!
 
Our esteemed daycare centers featured on the panel include:
 
Kids Work Chicago Too
Choo Choo Chicago
Bright Horizons
 
Thank you to our presenting sponsor, Kids Work Chicago Too.

It’s a night to be supported, to ask questions and share resources, and to be with other parents who get what it’s like to deal with special challenges for their kids. Parents of kids with all types of developmental differences welcome (sensory processing disorder, autism, ADD/ADHD, PDD-NOS, mixed receptive-expressive language disorder, Down syndrome, physical disabilities, medical issues, etc.). Parents/family only, please (no therapists, students or business owners).
 
Note: The July meeting is in person at Gigi's Playhouse, 3948 N. Lincoln Ave. Because many of our kids are medically compromised, we request that only parents/caregivers who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 attend. The August meeting will return to Zoom.
