We also offer a Baby University program. Baby University is a 10-week intensive parenting program for expecting parents and families with children aged 0 - 4. We believe that one of the most vital components to raising healthy, happy children is the establishment of a strong parent-child relationship. Baby University works with 100 families each year.
