Early Childhood Development Talk with Dr Leo Hamilton
9 October, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
We wish kids came with instructions! Children’s development is constantly changing – you think you have it figured out, then they throw a curveball at you and you’re back at square one.
That’s why we’ve teamed up with paediatrician Dr Leo Hamilton, speech therapist Charmaine Ong and psychologist Kimberly Chew for this talk on what to look out for in your child’s physical and mental development.
Our three experts will go through important developmental milestones and give tips on raising happy, healthy and well-rounded kids. You can also get answers to your questions about weight, eating habits, sleeping patterns, speech and more.
This is also a great chance to meet other parents and exchange stories and tips – because, as we know, raising children takes a village!
There will be free coffee and light snacks for both parents and children. Let us know if you’re bringing kids so we can cater and have enough entertainment for everyone.
Date: 9 September (Sunday)
Place: Annabelle Kids, 510 Thomson Road, #15-03 SLF Building
