Child Development - Laura Liebig, Baby Parent Steps

 After a short introduction, definition and goals about the educational PEKiP®program, the audience will learn about the importance of movements and all stages of motor development during the first year in a baby’s life. A practical demonstration based on learning by doing with your baby (or a practice doll) after the presentation will add depth and insight in understanding about the sensory-motor stimulation and activities of the program.

About Laura:

Laura is a parent, a mother of two daughters, an Int. Certified PEKiP® (Prague-Parent-Child-Program) instructor, the first and only in the US, with an advanced training in early childhood education for the first year of life. Laura is also a Registered Educational Social Worker since 1994 with years of experience working for the State of Bavaria at The Welfare Office of the Department of Children and Youth Education in Germany.

After relocating to Arizona in 2005, Laura decided to pursue her passion for early childhood education. She traveled to Germany many times for continuing education in becoming a PEKiP® instructor. Having greatly benefited from attending PEKiP® classes 19 years ago when her daughters were infants, Laura decided to bring this opportunity to Arizonians. At Baby Parent Steps, Laura is excited to pass on her knowledge and share her experience with parents and their babies through the educational and inspirational baby-parent program.

Family Nutrition - Stephanie Lucas, Give Garden


Not protecting your gut health is like entering an intersection where the traffic lights were knocked out…you’ve got cars coming and going in all directions, total chaos, and the risk of a fender bender is insanely high.  Your gut is a strong layer of defense against invasion from virus or bacteria.  It’s also where nutrition is absorbed so it can give our body strength.  We want to protect the roadway from pot holes, give nutrition a green light, give invaders a red light, and support traffic flow with proper road maintenance.  We will learn a few important tricks to help keep your family’s gut healthy!

About Stephanie:

Stephanie Lucas grew up as a competitive gymnast where she learned first-hand that the body required the proper fuel to feel good and perform at its peak potential.  Luckily, she was blessed with parents that loved to cook and a grandmother who had a passion for gardening.  It is no surprise that she dedicated her college years to studying human nutrition and her career to planting the seed of proper nutrition with others.  After spending 15 years in nutrition operations for hospitals and schools and now the mother of 2 young children and the wife of a busy firefighter, she is deeply dedicated to encouraging families to make healthy choices in their own homes.  As the Executive Director of Give Garden she launched that dream into reality in 2018.
Now as a mom, she values even more the importance of talking over a healthy meal each night.  She believes it is key to staying connected, growing our children’s vocabulary, bonding, and creating healthy habits for years to come. She started Give Garden to create opportunities for more families to explore healthy eating and new flavors and to bond over the creative process of cooking and eating together.
