Baby University Program

Human Service Programs

Baby University is an innovative family support program that serves Cambridge families who have children three years old and younger. The program provides parent education, playgroups, one-on-one visits, and beneficial community resources through workshops offered on Saturday mornings over a series of 14 weeks.

Baby U provides opportunities for parents to connect with each other and learn more about a variety of relevant topics while also strengthening their relationships with their children. Fathers and mothers participate together and separately, sharing their thoughts in small group settings and learning from each other during meetings as a larger group.

Parents who complete the program can join the Baby U Alumni Association. The association offers family fun events, workshops, and discussion groups that provide ongoing support to strengthen relationships and maintain connections between staff and families.

Like all programs offered through the Department of Human Service Programs, Baby U ensures that all Cambridge families have the same level of opportunity to access resources and programs.
