Parenting Services

Parenting Sessions

Through parent survey results and suggestions, BHK is able to offer a wide range of parenting sessions. Parenting sessions are often offered in the evening and BHK provides childcare to allow more families to attend.

 

Breastfeeding Support Groups

BHK understands the difficulties presented with breastfeeding and provides the opportunity for anyone breastfeeding or interested in breastfeeding to meet for support and form new connections. Breastfeeding support and education is offered monthly in Baraga, Houghton and Keweenaw counties. Trained lactation specialists are available for private consultations at home or in the hospital to help families with specific breastfeeding needs and questions.


Family Engagement Nights

BHK has monthly Family Engagement Nights for each center. Families enrolled in infant-toddler care, preschool and home visiting services are encouraged to attend. This is an opportunity for families and staff to socialize, play and learn through exploration and literacy activities.

 

Playgroups

BHK offers weekly playgroups in partnership with Keweenaw Family Resource Center in Baraga, Houghton and Keweenaw counties. Playgroups are an excellent time for play and socialization for you and your child. Children learn best through play, socialization and exploration. Families are encouraged to take advantage of the supportive, fun and educational environment during playgroup. A playgroup facilitator is present to help model interactions with children and to promote learning and development of social skills.
