The Family Room’s Mommy & Me program is up-to-date with helpful and practical information for today’s mamas. We cover newborn and baby development, parenting topics, and more. We always leave lots of time for questions. This class is also about you – we don’t leave out the mommy part of mommy & me. Lastly, we always have fun.

Here’s why our Mommy & Me program is special:

  • The group will become your village. You see the same moms every week. You share, bond, grow, connect and go out for coffee or lunch after class. Sometimes, they even become your life long friends.
  • There is a facilitated topic each week that is relevant to the age of the babies’ birth months to nurture attachment and learning with awesome handouts and lots of time for questions.
  • The group is led by a marriage and family therapist with an extensive background in infant and child development. It’s the best of both worlds.
  • The groups are organized by birth month, with generally a two month span, so all the babies are about the same age.
  • We understand that there are many different approaches, philosophies, and ways to do things when it comes to parenting. We will provide research-based curriculum, but want you to trust your gut.

The Basics:

  • The series are 8-weeks long and each class is 90 minutes.
  • Our interactive classes include songs, open discussion and the topic of the week.
  • Don’t see your birth month or looking for a weekend class? Email us with your birth month and we will be sure to contact you when your class is posted or if a Saturday group opens.
  • Session you want to join already started? Yes, you can join late! Email us for more information and we will do our best to get you in.
