Our groups are arranged to help bring together parents with little ones in similar developmental stages. We offer 3 groups: Peapods (0 - 5 months), Rolly Pollies (6 - 12 months), and Tiny Tots (1 - 2 years). If your little one is nearing the next age group, contact me and I will help you decide what group will best fit your needs!
We offer groups from the ages of 0 - 2 years old. I often recommend that expectant mothers wanting to join our ‘Peapods’ wait until their little one is 6 weeks old. This timeline gives you time to heal and get to know your baby.
If your little one is younger than 6 weeks and you’re interested in our services we offer 3 private sessions in your home for little ones 0 - 3 months with our Itty Bittys program.
Our program is tailored to fit your needs and scheduled throughout your fourth trimester. We recommend scheduling this service prior to the arrival of your little one or within the first 4 weeks, as we have a limited number of appointments available each month.
The goal of our program is helping new parents feel connected, confident, and having the tools to care for their little ones. Each meeting parents will have the opportunity to discuss their week, ask for help, and share stories. The group leader will also help parents feel confident about development by giving them play activities they can use daily to help their little ones achieve new skills. Groups are not only great for parents but also little ones, as it gives them a chance to interact with peers.
Well I’m glad you asked! A pediatric Occupational Therapist is a therapist that specializes in development. They are equipment to assist with milestones, fine motor development, gross motor skills, feeding, engagement, and so many more ‘Activities of Daily Living’. Pediatric OT focuses on helping children develop the skills they need to grow into functional, independent adults through play activities, since play is the occupation of the child.
Unfortunately at this time we ask that only the parents and the child participating in the group attend meetings. We do not want this to be a barrier to access for parents so we are working diligently on how to accommodate those parents with older siblings.
As a working parent myself, I completely understand how hard this can be. We are hosting a Saturday group beginning August 3rd at Unity Chiropractic in Franklin, TN. We love giving both parents, as well as parents who work outside the home, the opportunity to participate in our program.
