New Parent Support

Parenting can be a challenge, especially for military families. The demands of transitioning to a new installation, parental absence due to deployments or other military requirements, and being separated from family members and social supports can make adjusting to parenting all the more challenging. 
The New Parent Support Program (NPSP) is a professional team of social workers, counselors and registered nurses who provide education and support to Marine families who are expecting or raising children aged 0 -5 years old.



  • Home visits allow Marines and spouses to receive help with their concerns as a parent or parent-to-be in the privacy of their own home. Home visitors provide individualized family support, based on the unique needs of each family.
  • Baby boot camp classes are designed to teach the basic skills necessary for providing newborn care.
  • Group parenting classes provide “hands on” information to assist parents in understanding child development.
  • Interactive toddler playgroups are designed to teach parents developmentally appropriate play and to help children develop their social, cognitive and motor skills.
  • New Parent Support Program provides parenting education on a variety of topics such as pregnancy and health, newborn care, attachment and bonding, infant massage, discipline, child development and toddler care.
