Earn While You Learn

How Does It Work?

Pregnancy and parenting are filled with lots of uncertainty. This program helps to answer many of the questions you have.

  • The “Earn While You Learn Program” is an education-based system of earning the things you need for your baby.
  • You are welcome to be in the program until the child is two years old.
  • This program is FREE of charge.
  • Mommy and Daddy credits are earned by keeping a one-hour appointment with a Peer Counselor who will take you through a short parenting lesson.
  • The lessons are taught through a series of videos and worksheets that cover everything from pregnancy, and newborn care, up to the toddler years.
  • During your appointment you will usually see a video and then go over a worksheet and discuss the lesson together with the peer counselor.
  • Once credits are earned, you can enjoy using them to shop in our “Parenting Shoppe”.

The center staff is available to provide support and resources during this time of transition and change.

The lessons are fun, interesting, and practical. We can help you learn how to be the best parent you can be!  And best of all, you will work with a peer counselor who will be able to help you better understand the challenges and joys that lie ahead for you and your baby.

Earn Things Your Baby Needs:

As a part of our Earn While You Learn program, you are given the opportunity to earn credits that you can use to “purchase” materials like baby clothes, blankets, diapers, wipes, and other much needed supplies.

You can also earn larger items such as a stroller, highchair, and a new crib. We would love to have you involved in this program and show you the supplies and materials you can earn from our center!
