The Mission Valley Branch Library has partnered with Rady Children’s Hospital’s Healthy Development Services/Children’s Care Connection (C3) and First 5 San Diego to present the Baby Steps class series! From their baby’s first moments, parents strive to provide the best for their newborn, but the early days can be long and filled with uncertainty. Healthy Development Services Baby Steps is a series of workshops that offer parents an opportunity to understand the growth and learning that happens for infants, to learn unique cues for their own child, and strengthen their relationship with their babies and make supportive connections with other parents. Infancy is such an important time it a child’s life because it sets the foundation for children’s learning and future relationships.
Baby Steps is designed for parents of infants from newborn up to 15 months (prior to walking). These workshops focus on social-emotional development and communication skills. Baby Steps helps parents learn to understand their baby’s cues, build a strong bond with their baby, develop confidence in their role as a parenting and connect with other parents. Registration is required. Please come early to the first class on October 18th to fill out paperwork, and/or contact the library with questions at 858-573-5007.
