KidSmart

Pregnancy and parenthood can be filled with uncertainty. That is why Options Clinic offers a wide range of parenting services and life skills classes.

Our popular KidSmart program helps to answer many of the questions you may have on your parenting journey. With each lesson you can earn credit to shop in our beautiful Baby Boutique for items you may need for your baby—diapers, wipes, clothes, bottles, car seats, etc.

The clinic staff is available to provide support and resources during this time of transition and change. The lessons are fun, interesting and practical. We can help you learn how to be the best parent you can be!

KidSmart will help you understand what to expect in pregnancy and beyond. Through regular lessons that include videos and worksheets, you’ll learn important and interesting information about your pregnancy and your baby.

There are a number of topics to choose from, and our staff will put together a lesson plan that is unique to your needs and will help you better understand the challenges and joys that lie ahead.
