Baby Groups

Connecting with your child, while you learn

Baby Groups for expecting and new families are an excellent way for parents to spend quality time with their young child, promote healthy development and growth, and get answers for their parenting questions. The American Academy of Pediatrics says, Play is essential to development because it contributes to the cognitive, physical, social, and emotional well-being of children and youth. Play also offers an ideal opportunity for parents to engage fully with their children. Visit our Workshops page to sign-up.
