HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Earn While You Learn Program is an education-based system of earning the things you need for your baby. Mommy and Daddy money is earned by keeping a one-hour appointment with a Parenting Peer Counselor who will take you through a short parenting lesson. The lessons are taught through a series of videos and worksheets that cover everything from pregnancy to newborn care. During your appointment you usually see a video, then go over a worksheet and discuss the lesson together. Take some homework home and you earn even more. One lesson could earn you anywhere from $3.00 to $5.00. That one completed lesson earns enough to “purchase” about $25.00 worth of products in the Mommy Store! The Earn While You Learn Program has over 40 lessons for you to work from, and lessons are individually tailored to each person’s need.
HOW OFTEN DO I COME IN?
You may make an appointment every week. The sooner you start, the sooner you can earn that car seat or stroller that’s on your wish list, not to mention all the diapers and clothes your baby will need.
WHAT IF I AM DUE VERY SOON?
No problem! Once you are established in the parenting program, there are lots of opportunities for you to earn points right in the comfort of your own home. Take home an informational booklet from the center, answer the accompanying questions and you earn. Do you attend some kind of weekly group meeting? Planning on taking a Childbirth Class? Great! You can earn points for attending other educational classes or meetings in addition to the Earn While You Learn Curriculum.
The benefits of this program are many! You will be able to earn many items for your baby including the things you need every day. You will gain valuable knowledge on how to raise your little one. Your confidence level will go up and you will have great satisfaction from being able to say, “I did this for my baby.” You will be happy about your accomplishments!
