Live & Learn Classes

Join other parents/caregivers and their babies and toddlers in person. We’ll be meeting at Clemens Primary School in classroom 153.

Learn about your child’s development through discussions and simple at-home activities. Learn best practices and discuss parenting topics surrounding infant development and care. Typical topics include sleep, separation anxiety, growing independence, self-care, and more.

Class meets for 10 weeks. Participants will receive information and links about parenting topics, as well as 1-2 activities per week to do at home with their child.

These classes are offered in collaboration with LBCC.

For Fall 2021 classes, all adults must be vaccinated and wear masks fully covering their nose and mouth.
