Do you know any new or expectant parents? Be sure to tell them all about our Prenatal/Infant Class! This class offers so much to new parents.
“When I began the class three years ago with my then seven-week old son, I was looking for an enriching environment for my child, a way to connect with other parents, and to earn some college credits to maintain my teaching certificate. Little did I know that this class would shape the way I parent, introduce me to life-long friends, and give me a connection to such a supportive and amazing community. Teacher Beth gave me the resources, information, and advice to guide my husband and me on our parenting journey. I have been so grateful to have had that wisdom available since the beginning! As a current WFP parent, you know first-hand the impact this program can have on your family. If you know anyone who can benefit from this class, please share some of the following information!”

Our Prenatal-Infant Class is designed to offer support to parents to help them relate to and effectively communicate with their babies. Through sharing of personal experiences and incorporating information from current research, parents gain insights into early development. In addition, the curriculum includes sensory experiences, songs, games, massage techniques, toys, and verbal messages. Guest speakers on a variety of topics provide additional learning opportunities.
