 Are you a first-time parent? Or a soon-to-be first-time parent? If so, we invite you to join the Welcome Baby Community!

As a part of the Welcome Baby Community, you’ll receive access to:

  • Resources throughout the Fox Cities to assist you in your transition to parenthood
  • Opportunities to ask parenting advice and child development questions to local experts from our partner organizations
  • Regular opportunities to connect with other first-time parents in the area
  • Programs to engage with your baby as you learn and grow together
  • A FREE membership to the Building for Kids for the first 18 months of your child's life


Connecting Events happen the second Saturday of every month at the Building for kids. During these hybrid events, an expert from one of our partner organizations will lead a conversation focused on babies and parenting. A typical schedule for the event is below.
