PEPS Newborn

The PEPS Newborn program is for new parents to attend with their babies (2-16 weeks old when the group starts). Groups meet in the homes of groups members for 12 weeks, during the day with one parent attending (the same parent each week), or in the evening solo or with partners. Each meeting includes time for sharing parenting highs and lows, time to focus on the babies' development and a discussion topic. Meetings also include time for informal socializing and connecting with other parents.

Who Attends: One Parent or Parents & Baby
Time of Day: Day or Evening
Cost: $160/one parent or $210/parents*

Neighborhood: Find your area.

PEPS is excited to launch a partnership with FOCS - Families of Color Seattle - and we encourage all families with children of color to also join FOCS parent groups. For a limited time, when you register for a PEPS group, you can receive $50 off your full-price registration for a FOCS group! FOCS groups are intentional in creating space for conversations about race and equity, and focus on the journey of parenting children of color, centering their narratives. Discussions are facilitated through an anti-bias lens. For more information and to register: Look for the FOCS discount code in your Newborn registration confirmation email from PEPS.

Interested in doing a daytime group solo plus the evening group with your partner? If you join both a daytime Newborn Group and evening Newborn Group, you will receive $50 off the combined cost of both groups.  The discount will be applied towards your second group program fee. Use discount code Newborn2Groups when you register for your second group.

Looking for a group for parents of twins or multiples? Looking for a group for LGBTQ families? All families are welcome to participate in PEPS Groups, and we also have partnered with some local organizations offering groups specific to their communities. Learn more about these groups.

PEPS Parents Say It Best

"The best thing about PEPS was the comraderie. Meeting with these mamas and their babies every week and creating that connection was invaluable. I learned so much about myself, my abilities, and my baby, and made life long friends. PEPS is amazing!"

"This was the best parenting (and partnering) decision we have made. It aligned us with other parents in our neighborhood and it helps to filter through things that might feel overwhelming. Also, it is so great to share all the fun (and less fun) sides of parenting with other people who know and want to hear about it!"
