kepler academy

Parents, do you work in the downtown core or university area? Kepler Academy has created a free Lunchtime Speaker Series to bring our network of experts conveniently to you.

Sign up for one (or all) of our speakers below, bring your lunch with you, and take home more information about parenting topics like tooth brushing, how children’s brains are built, basic choking and CPR first aid, maternity and parental leave, healthy eating and tips on how to get your child to sleep.

We’ve offered each speaker both downtown and at the university, for easy, on-foot access where possible.
