Here is what parents are saying:

"I was so lucky to find the wonderful parenting classes at Acorn Hill! Parent/Infant I taught me about respecting my baby and connecting to him. It's been wonderful for me to be calm and really enjoy my son without fretting. We both loved the songs and finger play. Learning to observe really helped me to pay attention to what he was teaching me and be in sync with him."

"We were given the gift of space to become comfortable with trusting ourselves— as their parents, we know what our children ultimately need if we observe and listen. The experience helped shape my approach to parenting and rippled over, touching how I approach life."
