Support for New Parents

Even after your baby is born, we want to support you with those early days of parenting and childcare. Life as a first-time parent is not always easy, so let our expert team of parenting educators help you navigate the waters. We offer a variety of helpful classes meant to help boost your confidence and ease some of your fears and anxieties about bringing baby home.

Classes are scheduled according to your due date. For best scheduling options, we encourage you to sign up for classes during your 14th week of pregnancy. There is a charge for most of our classes, and all require advance registration.
