Circle of Parenting

For parents/caregivers and children 0-12 months old  & parents/caregivers who are expecting


Pregnancy and new babies bring profound transitions to families.

You are not alone. Questions may arise about a baby’s crying, need for holding, feeding and sleeping. Explore your role as a parent of an infant, how it feels, and what you need, while in the company of other parents and professionals. Join our group to learn about infant development, becoming a parent, and you and your baby’s journey toward a secure beginning.

Together we’ll build skills in observing and learning about your baby – understanding your baby’s perspective, finding calm, pleasure, and exploring baby and parent partnership.

This class includes quiet observation time, adult conversation where parents and caregivers can receive peer and facilitator support, and a brief singing time.
