The Grandparents Class

Throughout the generations, parents look for answers to the biggest parenting questions. This class describes ways grandparents can offer support and assistance to a new family, and also discusses current trends in birth practices and infant care. Like the expectant parents who are transitioning into a new life with the arrival of their child, grandparents are also going through an exciting transformation. Information provided on newborn capabilities, how to provide a safe environment for infants, and how to give emotional support to the new parents will assist you in being the best support you can be.

Note: Due to COVID all classes will be held online 

Zoom video invites will be sent out prior to the class.
