Class details

The program is full at the moment. Please contact Karina at 416-394-2424 ext. 225 to learn about next sessions offered. 

We are offering Baby Love, an attachment-based program for parents and caregivers of children from 2 months to 12 months, in partnership with Yorktown Family Services.

This program is supported by Dr. J. Wittenberg who designed and developed the Baby Love program at the Hospital for Sick Children.

To help caregivers learn about their babies’ minds, learn how to help their babies feel secure, learn how to help their babies deal with stress.

Babies who are secure have better relationships, learn better in school, have better physical and mental health.
