The Learning Center at Genesis
Discovering that you’re pregnant is an exciting time in your life. Genesis offers resources to help you understand the physical and emotional changes occurring. One of the best ways to prepare for a healthy childbirth experience is to learn about those changes and challenges.
Through The Learning Center at Genesis, expectant parents and parents with a child under the age of one can attend free classes to learn about pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting in a supportive environment.
Our instructors are knowledgeable and friendly. We offer a wide variety of educational opportunities, including newborn care, CPR and first aid.
Clients must be registered with the Learning Center before starting zoom or in person classes. Clients of the Learning Center can be mom and/or dad pregnant or with a baby under 1 year of age and must be a Pennsylvania resident. Please sign up at least 1 day in advance for in person classes and events (unless noted otherwise on the calendar). Zoom classes do not require registration in advance. Babies under 6 months are welcome to attend in person classes with mom and/or dad. They must be held or kept in their carseat. Babies over 6 months and children are not able to attend in person classes at this time. Classes can be repeated for knowledge but can only be taken 1 time to earn baby bucks.
Earn Baby Bucks for each class you attend. These can be used for new baby items such as a crib, mattress, and car seat. Baby Bucks can also be used to purchase gently used baby equipment, supplies, and furniture.
The Learning Center at Genesis also offers:
- Free pregnancy testing
- Assessment to determine needed resources
- Assistance and referrals to agencies and programs that can offer you additional support
