As you work your way through the program lessons, you will earn PRC Baby Bucks that you can spend in our well-stocked Baby Boutique. Boutique items include maternity & infant clothing, diapers, wipes, soaps, blankets, toys, breastfeeding supplies and many other items. Cribs, strollers, and other large items vary with availability.
This program is designed for those who cannot make it to the PRC for regular lessons. Program materials are provided to you after an initial visit at the PRC. You will receive weekly phone calls with a consultant to go over any questions you might have from the lessons. Make sure to stop by the Baby Boutique at the PRC whenever you are able and spend the Baby Bucks that you will earn!
Fathers matter. Research shows that a child who has an active father figure in his or her life has higher levels of self-esteem, higher educational achievement, better cognitive development, and better social interactions. Meet father-to-father to talk about real issues and get real solutions that help you be the best father you can be.
