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 in a child’s life because it sets the foundation for children’s learning and future relationships. Baby Steps is designed for parents that are expecting (prenatal) 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 parent and connect with other parents. Baby Steps is a 7-week series class. The first class starts on Friday, April 17th , at 10 a.m. Contact the library at 858-573-5007 with questions, or visit the library to complete an interest form. Registration is required and space may be limited.
