Parent-Infant Community

Serving ages two months through walking

Babies fill parents lives with joy, wonder, new challenges, and often, questions. The Parent-Infant Program is a supportive community of parents, caregivers and their babies that come together to learn, share experiences and provide support.

The program provides sacred time for one-on-one bonding and exploring with your child while answering questions, including:

  • How do I encourage development?
  • How do I create a safe environment for my baby to discover and gain independence?
  • How can I encourage peaceful sleep?
  • How do I nurture the bond with my child?


Classes meet once per week, with three session times available:

Tuesdays, 4:00 – 6:00 pm

  • First Semester: September 3, 2019 – January 21, 2020 (No class Nov. 26, Dec. 17, 24, & 31 due to school breaks)
  • Second Semester: January 28 – May 26, 2020 (No class March 24 due to Spring Break)

Wednesdays, 8:45 – 10:45 am 

  • First Semester: September 4, 2019 – January 22, 2020 (No class Nov. 27, Dec. 18 & 25, and Jan. 1 due to school breaks)
  • Second Semester: January 29 – May 27, 2020 (No class March 25 due to Spring Break)
