Pregnancy Education

The Earn While You Learn program is geared towards first-time moms to educate them on their pregnancy and aspects of parenting.

Is Earn While You Learn for Me?

"I really appreciate this program. It's interesting and a lot of help to me and my family. I really didn't know how I was going to make it before I did these lessons."
- Mother of a 3 month-old infant
 
"I enjoy the knowledge I receive in the Earn While You Learn program. I was amazed by the amount of information I was given. It all makes me feel more comfortable with what I am going through, because I know more about what to expect."
- Nichole, Expecting Mother
 

How Does It Work?

As you participate in our Earn While You Learn program, you can earn Boutique Bucks that enable you to "purchase" practical items like maternity clothes, baby clothes, blankets, diapers, formula and other supplies for your newborn. We may even have items like cribs, strollers and other baby furniture on occasion, based on the donations that come in.

Through a variety of topics that include videos and worksheets and one-on-one mentoring, you'll learn important, relevant, and interesting information on how to care for your baby.  

Can I Bring My Baby With Me?

Babies under 9 months may accompany their mothers during the lesson. For children over 9 months, please make arrangements for their care outside of the center.

Pregnancy and parenting are filled with lots of doubts and uncertainty. With each lesson that you complete you will earn boutique bucks for baby supplies and other goodies that you can pick out for yourself!

How Often Do I Attend?

The lessons are limited to two visits per month. They are fun, interesting, helpful, and practical. We want you to feel confident with parenting and enjoy the unpredictable changes that it brings.

Do I Need an Appointment?

You do not need an appointment, but we do ask that you arrive no later than 1 hour before we close so you have enough time to complete your lesson.

We know this may feel like a rollercoaster ride at times, but we want to assure you that there is help and support available every step of the way in regards to your pregnancy!
