Parenting from Newborn to Age 5

Parents and caregivers play an important and unique role in the lives of their children. Parenting has a deep impact on the health and well-being of children in our community.

Our role is to build on the capacity of individuals and communities to support positive parenting. We offer programs and supports for local parents and caregivers. See the list of programs below or find out what’s available based on your child’s age:

| Newborn | 1-3 months | 4-6 months | 7-9 months | 10-12 months | 13-18 months | 19-24 months | ages 2-3 | ages 3-4 | ages 4-5 |

Online Prenatal and New Parent Program

Finding trustworthy information on the internet can take time—time a new parent doesn’t have! Our FREE online prenatal and new parent program is loaded with information about pregnancy, birth, caring for a newborn and breastfeeding—information you can trust without the detective work. Information in the program will be most helpful during pregnancy and the first 8 weeks after birth.
