"Marblehead Parenting is a fantastic resource. I love the range of classes they offer. Sara is great! My older son participated in the Child Development class for a couple of years. We still sing the songs that we learned in the class. It was the primary place where I met most of my mom friends. I can't say enough good things about this place!" - Lynn, Marblehead
"When I had my twins, I went to the New Mom and Baby group. I was nervous that I would feel out of place because I had two babies instead of one and I formula fed. I'm so glad I pushed myself to go because it was such a warm and inviting environment. It quickly became the highlight of my week. Holly has such a calming spirit and is so knowledgeable. She became my go-to for all of my baby questions and concerns. I met moms who I now see and talk to on a weekly basis. It's been so sweet to watch our babies grow together. I am so thankful for MHP for having this group. It totally changed my journey as a mother for the better!" -- Carla, Revere
"Marblehead Parenting is a truly magical place! My two daughters ages 2 and 4 light up every time they walk through the doors. Owner, Sara Timm-Bane has created a warm, nurturing and safe environment for children to explore, play, learn and grow. Sara's innate love and passion for children combined with her extensive background in child development shine through in each one of her classes. My girls have loved the child development classes for the past 2 years and more recently have enjoyed the Magical Moments music class. As a mom I have had the opportunity to connect with other moms in the area and have developed lasting friendships. We feel so lucky to have Marblehead Parenting as such a wonderful resource in our area and highly recommend it to any young family looking for a unique and engaging experience" - Eva, Swampscott
"I cannot say enough amazing things about this new mom and baby group! I’m so thankful I made the leap and first went when my daughter was 6 weeks old. Not knowing what to expect and still chock full of new mom nerves I found that everyone was super welcoming from the start. It was such a relief to chat openly about everything (and I mean pretty much everything) motherhood amongst a non-judgmental group of ladies. Holly’s unending insights and expertise when leading the group always left me feeling lighter and more confident as a mother, as well as looking forward to the next weekly meet-up. So happy to have been introduced to this mama tribe that will grow with us at Marblehead Parenting."
"I have only wonderful things to say about Sara and her team at Marblehead Parenting! Favorites of ours are Child Development, Magic Moments, and Toddler Art. The classes are engaging and, most importantly, FUN for the little ones in a welcoming, friendly setting. I also appreciate the drop-in option for when we were trying a new class or weren't sure if it would fit in with our schedule every week. Can't wait for classes to start up again next week!" - Laura, Salem
"I joined Marblehead Parenting when my son was 3 months I was very nervous, I was afraid I wasn't doing things according to other moms. Two weeks in and my biggest regret was we hadn't started going earlier. At the time I felt alone on an island - nobody understood what I was going through. After going to Marblehead Parenting, my confidence grew, my son grew and I understood you are never alone. Holly is light I needed to guide me through the dark days. Now I find myself stopping complete strangers pushing babies in carriages and recommending this group. You are never alone. You will cry. You will laugh. You will be mad at your parents. You will be angry at your family. You will be crazy mad at your in laws. And you will want to kill your partner, but talking about it with a bunch of people in the same boat will make it all feel normal. The fourth trimester is as important as the other 3, look after yourselves, be kind to yourselves and JOIN HOLLY in easing your journey."
"It's been two years since we have been taking classes at Marblehead Parenting and we absolutely love it! From Child Development to Magic Moments to Art class, my almost three-year-old has enjoyed every minute. Sara and her team are fantastic and create such a safe and fun learning environment. Not only is it great for the kids, but moms, dads and caregivers have the chance to connect as well. We truly look forward to class each week!" - Laney, Marblehead
"As a new mother with absolutely no idea what I was doing, it was comforting to have a place to go each week where I felt supported by Holly and the amazing community of mothers I met." -- Coree, Marblehead
“Elijah just ate a full dinner. When we took the leftover pasta from today’s class (Little Chef’s Club) to show Daddy, he insisted on sitting and eating again! Dinner, take 2!” - Lisa, Swampscott
