Overview

As a parent in today’s world you are bombarded with lots of information about how to best care for your baby. In the Parent-Wobbler classes at Bellevue College (BC), the Parent Education Instructor helps you sort through theories and ideas so that you can become the parent you want to be. The Wobbler classes address the expanding growth of your child’s first year.

Join the Parent Education team for shared experiences in early learning through play, music and movement. Meet other caregivers (moms, dads, grandparents and nannies) who may be going through the same exciting and challenging changes. This weekly class will be a fun time for your wobbler and an educational and supportive time for you as you share with the other parents in the group.

This is a weekly “mommy and me” style class: Wobblers will accompany parents to a weekly class. There will be activities designed for the older baby and young toddler, including developmentally appropriate toys to play with, art and sensory experiences to explore, songs and games for babies.  Parent education sessions cover topics such as child development, early learning, sleep, nutrition, and the beginnings of setting limits and discipline.
