Thanks to your generous contributions in Laura's honor, we have granted 16 partial scholarships for Pikler participants on behalf of The Laura Briley's Scholarship Fund. We need your help and support to continue to offer this aid to our participants that want to learn about the Pikler Approach in depth.
It is with the saddest heart that we say goodbye to our friend, mentor and President of the Pikler Loczy fund USA. Laura J. Briley believed that children needed and deserved respect, love and attentive care so that they could grow up feeling that they mattered, and therefore have a smile in their hearts and a positive impact in the world.
Laura's commitment to improving children's quality of life, and her tireless dedication to her mission of creating Peace in the world one baby at a time will live on.
