The birth process is characterized by some as a “Heroic Journey” that requires support, preparation and great effort both before and after. This group will provide mentorship and peer support for birthing parents in the immediate postpartum period up to 6 months post-birth.
The Center for Early Childhood Connections is inviting preparing, expectant and/or pregnant parents to join us for our Baby Care Class on Tuesday evenings from 5:15-6:30pm. This class will provide information and guidance on topics such as feeding, sleep, development and communication as well as the basics of infant CPR/choking support (non-certificate). We will also be discussing the challenges of the "4th trimester"/ newborn period and ways to seek support and manage stress during this time.
Is your child having trouble making friends at school or with managing their emotions? Sign them for our Social Emotional Learning (SEL) group this fall! We will be learning about labeling, expressing and calming big emotions as well as making friends and understanding their feelings. These skills are core to social emotional development and can help children have a better experience in school. Each session will include a brief social emotional skills lesson, hands-on project, related story as well as scaffolded social interaction time with a small group of peers.
