Earn While You Learn

The “Earn While You Learn Program” is an educational system that equips parents with important information and skills necessary to care for and raise a healthy child. Not only can parents learn about subjects like labor and delivery, caring for your newborn, safety in the home and SIDS, but they will also earn “baby bucks” at each visit. Parents can exchange “baby bucks” for baby items in our Baby Boutique. 

 

Throughout pregnancy and up to the baby’s first year of life, participants meet with a client advocate who will guide them through the lessons. Those interested in our program must attend an orientation session. Please call the center to schedule at (209) 368-7190.
