Infant CPR (First Year)

This class instructs parents or caregivers on how to perform choking and CPR procedures on a baby if they have a breathing or cardiac emergency.

Your Third Trimester (Pregnancy)

Thursday, September 23 @ 2pm

You are moving into your third trimester, and you’re feeling VERY pregnant. Your baby is getting bigger, and you can feel her moving and kicking. What is going on in there?! While your body is changing to accommodate your growing baby, you are likely feeling more tired, but also strangely energized. You have a baby coming soon!! In this class we’ll talk about your changing body, what you might be feeling, your baby’s journey in development, and what you can expect in your third trimester.

Your Unborn Baby’s Secret World (Pregnancy)

Friday, September 24 @ 2pm

As recently as 25 years ago, we thought unborn babies were unaware of anything outside the womb. Since then, though, science has gained a better understanding of Your Unborn Baby’s Secret World. That secret place inside you where your unborn baby resides is not a deep, dark cave where she is hidden away, awaiting her birth. Far from it, your womb is her classroom, where she has begun a lifetime of learning, sampling, accepting, and rejecting – in short the process of growing that will continue throughout her life, from conception on.

Baby on the Move (First Year)

Monday, September 27 @ 2pm

Even before your baby was born, she was on the move. Much of her physical development before and after birth leads to her ultimate goals of standing and walking. From the earliest milestones to when she is finally walking, skipping, and jumping, a baby must learn many new skills along the way. This class will walk a parent through the developmental milestones that ultimately lead to their baby’s first steps. It will also offer helpful tips to create a safe environment for a baby’s exploration, and what to do if they come to a bump in the road, where their baby is not hitting those key milestones. 

Buying a Car (Life Skills)

Monday, September 27 @ 6pm

There are two ways to buy a car, the smart way and the not-so-smart way. The smart way can net you a car that meets your needs. The not-so-smart way can drive you to a load of debt and expenses you may not be able to afford. In this class, we will look at how to buy a car, pick through needs vs. wants, and how to avoid being taken for a ride.

12 to 15 Month Milestones (Toddler)

Tuesday, September 28 @ 2pm

Your busy toddler is quickly learning new skills in the areas of cognitive development, language and communication development, social and emotional development, and physical development. Every month brings exciting new advances to what they can do.

Infant Nutrition (First Year)

Wednesday, September 29 @ 2pm

There are many nutrients your baby needs in order to thrive. Putting it all together may seem like a complicated chemistry assignment. While a lot goes into providing your infant with a healthy diet, whether you’re breastfeeding, using formula, or eventually introducing solid foods, it’s really not complicated. Your healthy diet establishes a positive pattern for your family. No matter which feeding method you use, the same nutrients that keep you healthy will keep your baby healthy too. This class looks at the type of nutrients and the balanced diet your baby needs in order to thrive and grow.
