Classes ARE ON for today! Same times, same place, same smiling faces waiting for you 🙂 At this point, Salina roads are clearing off and today's temperatures should help that along. That said, please use caution if you're traveling from out of town, we would much rather have you reschedule than take a risk. <3 ... See MoreSee Less

That said, please use caution if youre traveling from out of town, we would much rather have you reschedule than take a risk.

With the impending weather, and at the recommendation of our bestie Trooper Ben, we have made the really hard decision to cancel both sessions for today. As of right now, classes WILL be held tomorrow, and Trooper will still be joining us tomorrow afternoon as long as he's not needed for weather-related accidents (so drive safe!!) Meghan will be contacting all of those who are registered for today's sessions to help plan and reschedule as needed. Thanks so much for your understanding, and we are so sorry for the inconvenience!

For questions and concerns, feel free to text me at (785) 577-9187 or email Meghan.Diehl@sschd.org!

This babywearing wedding is an ethereal dream! What a beautiful way to include their daughter in their special day.Since I posted about her wedding dress yesterday, I got a few requests to see photos of how Dalton wore her daughter during her wedding! Here are some of my favorites! Such a stunning baby wearing bride! 👌🏻 Check out my website for more of my work! I not only do weddings and engagements, but I also photograph families, children and seniors! Im based just outside of Pittsburgh, in Ohio but I love to travel (especially Western NY where Im originally from!) Edited to add: for those wondering what wrap she is using, here's a link! https://usa.oschaslings.com/en/shop/baby-wraps/nouvelle-molly ... See MoreSee Less

While we are getting off pretty easy compared to our neighbors further north, temperatures for tomorrow are predicted to drop below zero and impact the whole state. Please take precautions to ensure the safety of yourself and your little ones during this bitter cold! Limit outdoor activities, keep an eye on your vulnerable neighbors, keep those furbabies safe indoors, and take precautions to keep your pipes from freezing if they're vulnerable to the cold. If you must leave, bundle up and throw an extra blanket or two in the car- just in case! Stay safe and warm tomorrow, and see you on the other side of the polar vortex ❤ ... See MoreSee Less

Learn all about how language is one of the foundations of healthy, bonded relationships by signing up for our upcoming Incredible Babies class for infants and caregivers. This class is free, interactive, and childcare for older siblings is provided by our lovely partners at CAPS <3 Want more information? Drop us a line!

Whyisign
It is never too early to start signing to your baby, even if she is a micropreemie. This deaf dad is signing to his deaf daughter, telling her who he is, and what a beautiful baby she is, with her bright green eyes. Watch baby Arrow’s eyes and how she’s attentively listening to daddy telling her how much he loves her. #whyisign #askmewhyisign #Repost @untimelyblessing with @get_repost ・・・ Daddy who is Deaf signing to Baby Arrow who recently passed the Deaf test. ASL is vital for Deaf babies & lucky for our little squish she was born Deaf into a home where ASL is the primary language. She won’t have the struggles to communicate within her own family as her Daddy did.

Our 2019 schedule is here! Please note that our classes for June, July, and August have been condensed into 2 days, and should be taken into consideration when planning out your sessions.

Our 6 session prenatal classes use the March of Dimes' Becoming a Mom® curriculum to educate on a variety of topics relating to your pregnancy. Childcare is available upon request! Classes do not need to be taken in order, and you can space them out any way you'd wish to complete them before baby is born. Incentives are available after completing 4 sessions, with incentive upgrades available after your 5th and 6th completed classes. Only want to attend one or two on specific topics, such as breastfeeding or safe sleep? That's okay too! Just let us know when registering that you're only interested in specific sessions.

To be fair, this is how I react to Christmas lights every time!

As we wrap up our last week of classes for the year, we would like to thank all the amazing families that we had the opportunity to meet and know throughout 2018. Thank you for letting us be a small part of one of the most life-changing times you'll ever experience. We are truly blessed to be able to offer this program in our community, and hope to do so for a very long time.

Our staff will be out of the office until Thursday, December 27th, but please feel free to contact Meghan at (785) 577-9187 with any concerns or questions that might arise before then. Have a wonderful holiday!!
