Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Bham: Babywearing International of Bham

Baby carriers are powerful tools for parents and caregivers, enabling them to hold their babies much more comfortably and securely than they would otherwise. They help a new dad put a fussy newborn to sleep. They let a new mom use both hands to make a sandwich. They allow for discreet breastfeeding. They let an experienced parent or caregiver carry a baby on her back and wash the dishes, do the laundry, take a hike, weed the garden ... all while keeping the baby safe and content.

Many of the most comfortable and versatile carriers, however, have a bit of a learning curve. That’s one reason we formed Babywearing International of Bham, Alabama's first babywearing group. We bring together experienced “babywearers” and people who would like help choosing and using a baby carrier. It’s sort of a “fellowship of the sling.”

Our monthly meetings are a cross between a class and a play group. We bring lots of different styles of carriers and let people try them on to see what they like, and we also demonstrate how to use different carriers. Our meetings are free to attend and any parent or caregiver is welcome.
