Welcome, Baby! is a FREE program for expectant parents and parents of infants and toddlers. Additional caregivers are encouraged to participate also. Participants learn the foundational principles of a nurturing parent lifestyle. It is funded by Brighter Futures Foundation.

The program combines weekly classroom lessons with periodic one-on-one parent coaching.

  • Weekly lessons include: nurturing relationships, children’s brain development, developmental milestones, understanding empathy, needs and feelings, understanding discipline, nurturing parenting routines, alternatives to spanking, building self-worth, personal power and more...
  • Use of the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ), a screening tool used to build on a child’s developmental milestones and identify developmental delays.
  • Use of the Adult-Adolescent Parenting Inventory (AAPI-2), an inventory designed to identify high risk parent attitudes. Parents use the inventory to measure parent success and identify parenting goals.

Sponsored by the Oak Creek Library, the Oak Creek Health Department and the Parenting Network.
