Head to Toe
by knowledgeable and experienced professionals who offer practical and useful information to help parents manage the daily ups and downs of childrearing. Questions from group members are interspersed with a variety of age-appropriate topics to help parents better understand and appreciate their child’s development as well as their own process of the parenting journey. And, in the middle of this hubbub are the children --- who are practicing their tummy time, rolling, and crawling, pulling to stand, and exploring the developmentally appropriate play area with squeals of delight!

Although BABYGROUP® is known for providing first, second, third and fourth time parents with the structure and know-how of respectful parenting; it is also about developing strong friendships for parents and children, resulting in a true community of support that can last a lifetime.
