Smart Love’s Parent & Baby Classes for children ages 6 weeks to 11 months is a perfect introduction to Smart Love. This class gives parents an opportunity to socialize with other like-minded parents and get the most up-to-date information on their baby’s development. Led by a Smart Love-trained professional, the class explores various topics, including sleeping, crying, feeding, mobility, and emotional and social development.


Enjoy play time with your little one through tummy time, seated fun or cruising around the room. Discover developmental activities that stimulate and encourage learning while nurturing joy at every stage of your child’s development. This class will help you understand your child by seeing the world through her eyes at each stage of development, strengthening your parent-child bond.

When you register, you’ll receive a copy of the award-winning parenting book, "Smart Love: The Comprehensive Guide to Understanding, Regulating and Enjoying your Child," by Martha Heineman Pieper, Ph.D., and William J. Pieper, M.D.
