The PEPS experience strengthens families, increases family wellness, and prepares families to cope with life stresses by creating thriving neighborhood-based new parent groups.
PEPS Groups are fun and social, and each meeting includes time for sharing parenting highs and lows, time to focus on the babies' development and a discussion topic. Topics include feeding, sleeping, child development, balancing work and baby, self-care and many more.
Neighborhood-based groups for new parents with babies 0-4 months old. Groups meet in the homes of group members for 12 weeks, in daytime groups with one parent attending, or evening sessions with one or both parents.
Second Time Around
Focuses on the newborn in a family with one or more older children. One parent attends with the newborn 0-4 months old at a community location.
For families with 2 children ages 3 & under. One parent attends with both children at a community location. Babies and children remain in the room with their parents for the entire meeting. A professional facilitator leads the group with the assistance of a trained childcare provider.
Baby Peppers is for one parent and their older baby, ages 5-12 months. Groups meet at a community location.
In addition to PEPS Groups, we provide a variety of other events and resources that support new parents.
Adjusting to Parenthood
