Mommy + Me classes at NEST are a parent education, support and play group for first and second time parents. In our classes, parents often make new friends and always learn developmentally appropriate “tips and techniques” so they can become a more confident parent. In addition to discussion, classes feature music, movement, story time, art and sensory activities, as well as cooking. Each semester there are visits from our music and movement instructors as well as special appearances from local pediatric occupational therapists, sleep therapists, nutritionists and child psychologists. The activities and topics covered in these classes are designed to grow with your child as you move on to baby number 2!

Hatchlings (newborn – 6 months)
You just had a baby, now what? This is the place for new moms to connect, learn, share and show off their adorable new babies! In this 60-minute, discussion and support class you will meet other parents with babies of similar age and explore common concerns like adjusting to parenthood, emotional changes, infant development and everyone’s favorite topic…SLEEP, with your peers and your facilitator, a child development educator and clinical psychologist. You will also hear from guest speakers and experts in the field including sleep consultants, breastfeeding specialists, and pediatric physical, massage and occupational therapists. You will learn tips and techniques that you can use at home, lap songs that you can duplicate, age appropriate books and toys and, most importantly, you will get to bond and make lifelong connections with other new parents as you embark on this journey together. Please note!  This class is meant just for those who have recently give birth - partners are treasured, but asked to stay at home.
