  • Are you planning to return to work, or are you already back?
  • Concerned that hours away from baby will harm your attachment?
  • Feeling a bit confused or overwhelmed with how to choose a caregiver for baby?

Participants in this session will be able to:

  • Identify your values for what your baby experiences while you work
  • Compare benefits of different types of care
  • Learn how to choose what feels right for you
  • Create routines that work for you and your baby

Having a baby is an exciting time in your life. Whether this is your first or third, each arrival brings great joy and new challenges. When you add the transition out to Family Leave and then back to work, plus an ever-changing “new normal,” you deserve an army of support. That’s where the LEGO Welcome Baby, Welcome Back to Work Program comes in.  Classes, Conversations and Coaching will help you and your peer colleagues more easily master new beginnings for you and your baby.

First Classes, our Welcome Baby Solution Series Library gives you 24/7 access to specific parenting challenges. Each Flash Class includes an easily digestible (15 min+/-)  Video and Handouts that unlock a key piece of the parenting puzzle.  Click on any title below and watch the video as often as you would like and share the handouts with your caregiving partner.

Next are Conversations, led by Peace at Home Parenting experts.  Come together with your LEGO Colleagues to learn, share and gain support.  If you miss a conversation, the recording and handouts will be posted below and in your course catalog.

● Apply strategies to quickly include fitness into your day 

● Identify fun ways to include kids in your workouts 

● Improvise new approaches when the perfect workout just isn’t possible.
