Issaquah parents group forms Sept. 26
September 20, 2011
The nonprofit Program for Early Parent Support, or PEPS, plans to launch a new parent support group in Issaquah for parents of children 5 to 12 months old.
Known as Baby Peppers, a first meeting for the group is planned for noon to 1:30 p.m. Sept. 26 in the meeting room of the YWCA Family Village at Issaquah, 949 N.E. Ingram Way.
The program allows new parents to get together, with their children, and discuss the challenges they face.
The first three months of meetings feature a trained facilitator. After that, parents are encouraged to meet on their own. Some Seattle-area groups have been together for 10 years.
The cost of the program is $155. PEPS offers scholarships to parents. Learn more at www.peps.org/programs/infants/baby-peppers.
