Parenting Services 

Pregnancy and Parenthood are filled with uncertainty. That is why Real Options offers a wide range of parenting education and life skills classes.

Earn While You Learn

Our popular “Earn While You Learn” program helps to answer many of the questions you may have about pregnancy and newborn care. Through regular lessons that include videos and worksheets, you’ll learn important and interesting information about your pregnancy and your baby. There are a number of topics to choose from and our staff will put together a lesson plan that is unique to your needs and will help you better understand the challenges and joys that lie ahead.

With each lesson you can put your name in a drawing for a monthly quilt as well as pick an item from our baby boutique. When you’ve completed twelve lessons, you may choose from a NEW car seat, high chair, pack ‘n play, or stroller.

The Center Staff is available to provide support and resources during this time of transition and change. The lessons are fun, interesting and practical. We will help you prepare to be the best parent possible!
