“Bright Futures is fascinating and practical. After taking the course, I now understand why and how certain activities can help shape my son's development (even from a young age). I've gained the confidence to parent with more intention and highly recommend this course.”

Kimberly R.
Teacher & Author

"If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed or frustrated in parenting moments and been at a loss for how to guide your child, this course is for you! The information is easy to consume, brings many light bulb moments and gives you the scripting and resources to start implementing what you’ve learned immediately."


"This course covers all the important developmental milestones and is even helpful if your kiddo is a bit older. I found this course so helpful with tips for my kiddo with Autism, and the play-based skill development is so approachable even for kids with different needs."

Meet Renee Jordan

Hi, I’m Renee, one of the founders of Earlybird. I am a mother, teacher, and curriculum designer with a Masters in educational psychology from Columbia University.

I have worked with families across North America, conducting learning assessments and devising learning plans. I have seen firsthand how many children are starting school behind in core developmental domains, and I know this doesn’t need to happen.
