New group for moms of 5-12 month olds to start
Do you have a crooner, crawler or cranky teether? Baby Peppers is a PEPS Group for parents of 5-12 month olds.
Baby Peppers is a place to connect with and learn from other parents who are going through the same joys and challenges.
In a PEPS Group, parents meet (with their babies), share, and learn from one another, building confidence in their own parenting skills and sharing resources and information.
Each meeting includes time for sharing parenting highs and lows, followed by a discussion of a parenting topic. Sessions are facilitated by a trained volunteer.
Baby Peppers meetings take place over 11 weeks and also include break time for informal socializing and connecting with other parents.
Baby Peppers is open to all families with babies 5-12 months old when the group starts. Some families have participated in a PEPS Newborn group but many are new to PEPS.
The Edmonds Baby Peppers group will meet on Wednesdays, starting Sept. 25 from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at the Edmonds Center for the Arts, 410 Fourth Ave N, Edmonds.
The Mountlake Terrace Baby Peppers group will meet on Mondays, from Sept. 23 from 12 to 1:30 p.m. at the Parent Trust Classroom, located in Hall Creek Office Park, 6912 220th St SW, Mountlake Terrace.
The reduced program fee is $100 for the 11-week facilitated session. Scholarships are also available.

And, for new and expecting parents who are interested in PEPS neighborhood-based Newborn Groups, PEPS offers several While You’re Waiting Drop-In Sessions in South Snohomish County in Bothell and Lynnwood.
Attending a While You’re Waiting Information Session is a way to meet other new and expectant parents and talk about the experience of pregnancy and early parenthood.
These drop-in sessions give attendees a chance to sample the PEPS experience and to get their questions answered about PEPS Groups.
There’s no need to register and people are welcome to come with babies in arms.
