What We Do

We organize and facilitate community-based, peer support groups for new parents across the Triangle area in North Carolina.

Our support groups are based on the model designed by the Program for Early Parent Support (PEPS) in Seattle, WA and utilize the PEPS curriculum. TAPS is a proud member of the PEPS Network and the only North Carolina provider of PEPS based groups.

Each meeting includes time for sharing parenting highs and lows, singing songs to the babies, a time for parents to learn developmental games to play with their child, and a group discussion on a topic related to the adventure of parenting. Meetings also include break time for informal socializing and connecting with other parents. Groups discussions are led by a trained TAPS Group Leader for 10 weeks and parents are encouraged to continue providing support for each other by continuing to gather for as long as they choose.
