How do I earn items for my baby through the Practical Parenting Classes?When you register for class, participate in the lesson, submit the lesson homework and other simple tasks, you can earn points that can be redeemed in our Buttons & Bows Boutique, located here at The Refuge Center.
Is this class only for first time moms and dads?No. Some of our clients already have a child or two. But we have heard that they wish they had taken this class the first time around! But first time parents definitely find the information and lessons extremely beneficial.
Are the classes conducted in person or online?Currently our Practical Parenting classes are offered online through Brightcourse. (Think of it as Netflix for parenting help). However, to redeem your points for baby care items you will need to set up an in-person shopping appointment with our parenting coordinators.
How do I enroll in the Practical Motherhood or Practical Fatherhood course?Simply click here and fill out a short form. One of our instructors will contact you within ten business days to set up an orientation and get you started.
How long can we be enrolled in the program and earn points?You may begin earning points during your pregnancy. The Practical Parenting program has many lessons that can carry you from pregnancy to toddlerhood and beyond. However, due to storage space in our boutique, we have items available for birth to 1 year old babies. Once your child has turned 1 year old and you are no longer earning points, you can still request access to the valuable lessons that our video provides. If you still need material assistance, you can make an appointment to receive a distribution of gently used baby items for your family.
Do you have everything that I will need for my baby available in the Boutique?All of the items we distribute are provided by the generosity of the community. Therefore, all items are subject to availability. Supplies change weekly.
