           Calendar Sale

A “Baby’s First Year” calendar is available for purchase for $15 from the Dr. Yoli Duralde Guild. Experience and research has shown that knowing what to expect of our children’s behavior will assist caregivers and can decrease child abuse. The calendar is designed to provide information that will help familiarize caregivers with normal child development and behaviors, inform caregivers of ways they can help their child, and point out potential dangers.  For more information please contact the Dr. Yoli Duralde Guild at
