Parents and their babies invited to register for Edmonds PEPS group

Do you have a crooner, crawler or cranky teether? Baby Peppers is a PEPS Group for parents of 5-12 month olds. A Mountlake Terrace/Edmonds Baby Peppers Group starts April 1 and registration is open now. Baby Peppers is a place to connect with and learn from other parents who are going through the same joys and challenges.

In a PEPS Group, parents meet (with their babies), share, and learn from one another, building confidence in their own parenting skills and sharing resources and information. Each meeting includes time for sharing parenting highs and lows, followed by a discussion of a parenting topic. Sessions are facilitated by a trained volunteer. Baby Peppers meetings take place over 11 weeks and also include break time for informal socializing and connecting with other parents.

Baby Peppers is open to all families with babies 5-12 months old when the group starts. Some families have participated in a PEPS Newborn group but many are new to PEPS. The Mountlake Terrace/Edmonds Baby Peppers group will meet every Monday from noon to 1:30 p.m. April 1 – June 17 at the Parent Trust Classroom, located in Hall Creek Office Park, 6912 220th St. S.W., Mountlake Terrace.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Verdant Health Commission, families who live in South Snohomish County within the Verdant Health District will automatically receive a 35-percent program fee reduction when they sign up for Mountlake Terrace/Edmonds Baby Peppers. The reduced program fee is $100 for the 11 week facilitated session. Scholarships are also available.
