Triangle Area Parenting Support (TAPS)

Raising young children can feel isolating and asking for help is never easy which is why Triangle Area Parenting Support (TAPS) works so hard to empower new parents. TAPS utilizes both the Program for Early Parent Support (PEPS) and Circle of Security – Parenting (COSP) to empower parents to build community for themselves and secure attachment with their children from the very beginning.

Each week parents attend group meetings, make new friends, learn about child development, and build community support for themselves. No matter which type of group you join, you’ll spend time sharing parenting joys and challenges and discussing a vital parenting topic each week. Meetings also include break time for informal socializing and connecting with other parents.

Join the program that fits your stage of the parenting journey:
