Baby & Me: Learning Together supports parents in raising young learners
STORIES & TESTIMONIALS
"My daughter always demanded a lot of attention, and when she got closer to joining school I realized, "I need an opportunity to interact with my son more." The first thing that brought me to Baby and Me was spending more time with my son."
"If I'm in need of something, as a family if we need a support, now I'm always connected to all the right people. I have personally benefitted many times from the huge resource list that Baby and Me has. From sleeping issues to behavioral issues, they have all of these resources; they're a huge help to the family."
"Eventually I want to launch successful adults. I want them to be independent people, and I'm at the very beginning stages of that, and yet I think this is the most important foundation."
"My favorite part is the developmental learning for the parents, and getting to hear from the speakers. I learned a lot about sensory motor development."
"Y loves books, and it was a good way for him to see other people read with them and play with them. With the program, I have new books that I didn't know were around. They gave me other types of books that he likes and I like. Reading is a really fun thing to do with Y, he loves it and I love to do it with him... so it gives us this special time together to read."
"I really enjoyed being introduced to different things I might not have gotten to on my own. There was one period where G was into pirates, and Kris brought him a pirate book, and he was so excited... that night we painted a pirate flag and made the couch into a pirate ship while G enacted different parts of the book Kris gave him."
"Kris was able to answer a lot of my questions that I might not have realized I had. There were a lot of things we talked about, she encouraged me to apply for Early Intervention, and that was really helpful."
"The home visits were helpful. My favorite part is the reading, and at first my baby didn't like the books, but right now she can stay with a book a couple of minutes, and I think that's AWESOME!"
"After I joined Baby and Me, I speak Chinese, and English is difficult to me, but I learned English songs with Angela and it is very helpful for me, both me and my baby."
