What's Parenting Oasis?

Parenting Oasis provides drop-in play space and support for parents that operates like a coffee shop. We have coffee, baked goods, and a healthy lunch. The kids play while the parents enjoy some adult conversation. Often the topic turns to birth or nursing, nutrition or discipline. And sometimes just the stuff of life.

We also offer classes and workshops. We have a weekly new moms group, book groups, clothing swaps, and much more. We support new families building strong connections. We also have marriage education workshops and a free weekly newsletter, “Notes from a Marriage Geek,” for those balancing taking care of kids and having a powerful marriage. If you think you may be suffering from postpartum depression, we can help with that as well.

All parents need community. Drop in for food, play, and great conversation. Make some new friends. It is really just that simple –  please join us. The first cup of coffee is on the house.
