Past events

Picture book story-time

Our picture book story-time event on June 16, 2018, was a fun and lively session with stories, fingerplays, and songs. It was co-hosted by Little Eden Preschool and led by David Howd, a retired children’s librarian.

Thank you to the families who participated in the event and donated wonderful children’s books. We donated these books to The Healthy Generations Project at Potrero Public Housing in San Francisco.

ParentTech: explore new scientific apps and products

Most parents have questions about the use of media and technology — what, when and how to use educational apps and products. So we’ve decided to start a series of Inceptive events where parents can connect with experts and learn about new educational apps. We hosted our first event in this series on March 17, 2018 at Hax San Francisco. 

We started this event with a talk by Christine Elgersma. Christine is a Senior Editor, Parent Education at Common Sense Media. She spoke about how to get kids off of devices, benefits of co-playing/co-viewing media, balancing screen time with other activities, and choosing the best apps and media for learning.
 
Product teams from Aiko & Egor (Animation 4 Autism), Kinedu, Cinemood, Babynoggin, Octopus Watch, Playfully, and Oya Labs showcased their products at this event.

What parents should know about flat head syndrome

We hosted our first webinar on pediatric health – flat head syndrome on March 3, 2018.

Flat head syndrome or plagiocephaly is a common but treatable and preventable disorder in infants. Inceptive was fortunate to have a very accomplished pediatric neurosurgeon from Brazil conduct a webinar on this topic. For those who couldn’t attend, please see the video here. We hope you find it informative.

*Note: The goal of this webinar is to raise general awareness among parents and not offer advice on individual cases. The treatments and preventive measures discussed here are based on scientific evidence and best practices. However, if you have any questions about appropriate care for your child, please discuss them with your pediatrician.

Parent-infant workshop

We hosted our first free event, Help your child thrive (a parent-infant workshop) for a small group of first time parents on December 2, 2017 in San Francisco, CA.

This interactive workshop was be led by an experienced Montessori educator, Françoise Sansoni. Françoise demonstrated simple activities that stimulate physical, language, and cognitive skills for infants aged 3 months – 7 months. Read Françoise blog to find out more!
