We've been working hard this summer to overhaul and improve some of our processes. One process that we know has been a headache for everyone has been getting into the group that fits your schedule. Well folks, we finally added a group calendar page so you can see what's coming up before you sign up!
Sign up is now easier and more straightforward for everyone. In the past, I would spend the better part of a couple of weeks sending emails, aligning schedules, and trying to make sure that everyone who wanted to could joining a group. It didn't always happen and every time I couldn't get a group together for someone, it made us all sad.
With our new sign up process, you can see right away what groups are already on the calendar and choose the group that fits your family. It's literally as easy as 1 - 2 - 3!
This is where you'll give us the information we need to make sure the group you choose is a really good fit for you. No group on the calendar in your region? Registering with us helps us know where we have areas of interest so we can plan a future group in your region. If we can build a group, we will! And we'll get back in touch with you so you can opt-in if the group is a good fit for you. Check back frequently so you can see when we add more groups!
It's free to register and you're under no obligation to join a group.
After you register with us, you'll take a look at all the events on the calendar and opt-in to the one that works the best for you. If there's not one that works, don't worry, you can always come back to this page to see if we've added any more groups. Groups have a maximum of 10 families and are first come first serve. If a group you're interested in is full, you'll be added to a waitlist and notified if a spot opens up.
Paying your deposit reserves your spot on the roster for the group you've chosen. You won't be confirmed on the roster until you've paid your deposit, so don't skip this step!
After you've picked your group and paid your deposit, sit back and enjoy waiting for your baby to arrive - or snuggle up with that new sweet baby in your arms.
You'll hear from us about 2 weeks before your group starts with confirmation and your group leader will email the group with an introduction about 1 week before the group starts. You'll get monthly newsletters from us about upcoming family events, interesting research-based articles to read, and other ways to stay connected as a family.
