Parent and Me Group
Groups are offered for new parents and babies ages 3 months to 18 months. In order for topics to be relevant, we do our best to create groups with babies whose birth dates are within 2-3 months of each other. Groups meet once a week for 1 hour and 15 minutes on Monday or Wednesday mornings from either 9:30AM-10:45AM or 11:15AM-12:30PM. Groups are purchased in packages of 10 for $350. Ideally, parents continue to enroll until their babies are 18 months old. One parent consistently attends with their baby; however, if another parent needs or would like to attend the group, it can be arranged.

During each group, we explore relevant topics and discuss parents’ questions. We foster bonding time with baby through songs, movement activities and toy exploration. As baby grows, our topics and activities reflect appropriate developmental stages. Some issues we address: baby’s sleep and feeding schedules, developmental milestones, and post-partum concerns. BabySpace groups provide an opportunity for parents and babies to have fun, laugh, and make long-lasting friendships.

Second/Third-time Parent and Me Group
Groups are offered for babies ages 3 months to 18 months. In order for group topics to be relevant, we do our best to create groups with babies whose birth dates are within 3-4 months of each other. Groups meet once a week for 1 hour and 15 minutes on Monday or Wednesday mornings from either 9:30AM-10:45AM or 11:15AM-12:30PM. Groups are purchased in packages of 10 for $350. Ideally, parents continue to enroll until their babies are 18 months old. One parent consistently attends with their baby; however, if another parent needs or would like to attend the group, it can be arranged. We foster bonding time with baby through songs, movement activities and toy exploration.

Although we do review the information discussed in our Parent and Me group, our focus is on the new issues that arise from being a parent of a second or third child. Such issues include: creating adaptable routines, adjusting to new family roles, sibling rivalry, coping with guilt, and making time for yourself. Our Second/Third-time Parent and Me groups allow parents to designate special time with their second baby in a fun and supportive environment.

Parent Only Group
This group is offered for parents only in the evenings.  This is a nice opportunity for working parents or those parents who cannot attend the weekday groups.  The group meets one time per month for 1 hour and 30 minutes.  Parents are grouped together based the number of children they have and their child’s age. Groups are purchased in packages of 4 for $200.  Child development and parent education topics are presented. Ample time is give for open discussion and Q & A.

In-home and Phone Consultation
We provide consultation for parents of children ages newborn to five. Parents often need additional one-on-one support to ease through unanticipated challenges such as sleep, tantrums, feeding, potty training, discipline, and sibling rivalry issues. We realize that consultation time may vary from family to family. We provide additional follow-up sessions as needed. Our In-home/phone consultation fee is $200 per hour. Brief phone consultations under 15 minutes are free. Anything thereafter costs our hourly rate of $200. Please call 310.853.3374 to set up a consultation.
