Brighter Futures is a not for profit organization serving families aged 0-6 years


We loved Friday mornings Little Learners Virginia Park!  We always looked forward to Friday because we knew we would see our new friends! It introduced me to moms (and dads) of children the same age as my son and we were able to share experiences and learn about parenthood together. We had some wonderful guest speakers to help us understand about baby massage, eating habits, sleeping patterns and more. It was a comfortable environment where we could bond as adults and our children could also grow and learn together. Alisa made everyone feel so welcome and was so helpful and kind to all of us, she asked us what guest speakers we wanted and she was always there to lend a hand when a baby wouldn’t settle. We still sing the songs we learned at Little Learners, especially ‘Take me out of the Bathtub’, ‘Smooth Road’, ‘Sleep my little one’ lullaby and ‘The Rocketship song’. I have been very lucky to remain friends with many of the parents I met at the program and we still stay in contact two years later. I am about to have another baby in January and I am really looking forward to attending the group again! The snacks were awesome too!

Healthy Baby Club has helped me to understand pregnancy a lot better. When I had questions or concerns the leaders were always so very helpful in answering my questions and alleviating concerns. I absolutely loved being a part of such a great group of expectant moms.
