Benefits and Membership


Members enjoy socializing with other parents and children in an inviting playroom filled with age appropriate toys/activities, as well as a shaded outdoor play yard and sandbox. Our "drop-in” provides quality playtime for parents (and grandparents) with their children under 4 years old.

Parental Guidance

Members have access to our staff of Parent Educators to discuss parenting issues. The staff's role is to guide and coach parents using practical suggestions to help with the ordinary stresses of raising children from birth through adolescence.

The following topics are commonly discussed:

  • Infant care & concerns
  • Toddler tantrums
  • Setting limits
  • Sleep issues
  • Feeding issues
  • Toilet training
  • Discipline
  • Juggling work & family
  • Parental frustrations
  • Divorce and family stress
  • Single parenting
  • Stepfamilies
  • Ages & stages
  • Sexual curiosity
  • Aggressive behavior
  • Self esteem
  • Adolescence
  • Adoption


The center maintains an extensive library of parenting books and videos that may be checked out by members only. Just for fun, children's videos are also available for check out.
