Rahoo Baby allows all parents to feel confident about their baby’s developmental milestones with new virtual offerings via ‘Rahoo U’

BOSTON, Mass. -- Boston startup Rahoo Baby, a baby product company made up by a team of physicians and pediatric therapists, is launching "Rahoo U," an online classroom for parents. Launching January 25, Rahoo U teaches parents the most effective techniques for helping babies master the skills they need at each stage of development, and offers guidance on how parents can incorporate these techniques into their daily routines.

Courses, which cost only $49.99 are led by a team of licensed pediatric therapists with experience from the most competitive hospitals and clinics in the Boston area.

As developmental delays become increasingly more common, today's parents know the importance of learning and overall brain development during a child's first year of life. Unfortunately, though, 90% of parents still don't receive support from qualified healthcare professionals who know how to provide the most developmentally rich early learning experiences for infants.

In the course "Mastering Baby Milestones," parents are taught specific, clinically-validated activities and techniques that help babies master the skills they most often struggle to develop on their own. Topics covered include skills such as crawling, independent sitting, and tummy-time (which 75% of parents report as a stressor at home). Mastering Baby Milestones also contains discussions about the subjects parents don't learn about until it's too late, such as how to prevent flat-head syndrome, and why it's so important that babies learn to move!

"As pediatric therapists, we've spent nearly a decade working hands-on with infants, and coaching parents on how to get the most out of their baby's first months of development," says Co-founder and CEO Matt Breen. "We're focused on bringing this information to parents from all walks of life."

As Americans spend more of their lives online in new ways, the team saw an opportunity to create Rahoo U. "The best part is being able to reach more families without having to leave their homes. Our goal is to make sure that access to early childhood development tools becomes more equitable, and this is just a starting point," Breen adds.

About Rahoo Baby

Rahoo Baby is on a mission to ensure that all parents have access to the tools and information that spark infant development. Rahoo Baby provides uniquely designed, meaningful baby products that have a lasting impact on early childhood development. Founded in 2018 by pediatric occupational therapists Matthew Breen and Erica Costa along with Physician Thomas Quinn, the group of healthcare professionals came together to play their role in making sure babies can have the best possible start in life.

The award-winning Rahoo Baby Learn & Lounge can be found online at Buy Buy Baby, and launches with Target in March 2021. Rahoo Baby plans to launch their second and third products in the Summer of 2021.

Detroit Moms Partner to Start Virtual Circle Time for Preschoolers Who Need Socialization

DETROIT, Mich. -- No Fear Café, a co-learning center located in the heart of Detroit, announced the launching of its new online community, "Ready to Learn Circles." Moms and business owners, Alicia McKay and Shanna Sansom, have partnered to launch "Ready to Learn Circles" which is a new virtual program that pairs qualified instructors with early learners ages 2-6, for live, remote, daily Circle Time sessions.

Virtual Circle Time offers the same structure, consistency, and social development found in traditional Preschool, Pre-K, and Kindergarten settings.

Due to the isolating nature of COVID-19 precautions, there is a tremendous need for early childhood experiences that are well-prepared, diverse, engaging, fun, and socially interactive.

Local mom, Jenaie, took advantage of early enrollment and she expressed, "So excited to have found a pre-k circle time for [my son] so that he can engage with other children."

Upon enrollment, all students receive a FREE Engagement Box, which includes several fun thematic items for use during the Circle Time such as small instruments, books, and quick crafts. The first Circle Time will be held on January 4, 2021. In addition, with early enrollment, families will gain access to special virtual events, one-on-one targeted instruction, and homeschool coaching.

No Fear Café believes that "Ready to Learn Circles" is an innovative approach to Circle Time, designed to give participants an experience that most closely mimics face-to-face instruction through song, dance, crafts, imaginative play, and other enriching experiences in the Circle!

"I am proud of our commitment to this important work with early learners," said Alicia McKay, Owner of No Fear LLC, who is Executive Director of "Ready to Learn Circles."

Shanna, Managing Partner feels, "The social needs of early learners are easily overlooked and underserved in remote learning environments."

No Fear LLC's mission is to use its energetic Circle Leaders to demonstrate that learning should be dynamic, interactive, and inclusive. Enrolling students across the country in "Ready to Learn Circles" is one huge step towards that goal.
