Mom & Baby Program-Thursdays 11-12:30pm at Kids & Company (Sept 19-Nov 7, 2019)
It takes a village to raise a child and thanks to Mommy Connections I have found my village.”
Learn, have fun with your baby, and meet other new moms in Oakville!
Our flagship Mom & Baby program offers new moms a unique opportunity to meet other moms, learn about local programs and services, and gather valuable parenting info – in a fun, low-pressure, inclusive environment.
Each week features a discussion led by a local expert on topics ranging from sleep to introducing solids to baby massage. Following that, we’ll enjoy a fun and interactive activity for mom and baby – like yoga, sign language, or music – and an informal opportunity to chat with others experiencing the same challenges, fears and excitement as you are.
We meet from 11am to 12:30pm on Thursdays at Kids & Company (463 Cornwall Rd). This session runs for eight weeks, with our next one beginning on September 19-November 7, 2019.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How old should my baby be when I register?
A: The ideal time to do this program is when your baby is between two and four months old. That said, we welcome moms of newborns so long as your health care provider has cleared you for moderate exercise. We also welcome ‘older’ babies up to 8 months, so long as they aren’t mobile yet.
If your baby is older, we offer a Mini Movers program for 8 to 18 month olds, and a very popular Travelling Tots program for 1.5 to 4 years.
Q: Can I attend just a few classes?
A: Single sessions are not available. A huge focus of our program is community building, which can only be created when a group is consistent from start to finish.
Q: How many moms are in each class?
A: We aim to keep classes at or below 15 participants to foster a cozy, community feel.
Q: When will I find out the schedule of topics/activities?
A: You will receive a schedule via email before your session begins. A sample schedule is available above.
