The Parent Education program is designed to engage expectant families, mothers, fathers or guardians with children 0 – 5 years in connecting with their children in an empathetic manner.
We offer relevant courses addressing family and life issues that parents are facing today. Our goal is to support mothers and fathers in raising their children to the best of their ability by providing resources, skills and activities that will unite their families through love, compassion, structure, mutual understanding and fun.
Services offered through the Parent Education program include family and life courses and workshops, access to our Parent Resource Center, mentorship, incentives and special events. Classes include topics such as nurturing parenting, budgeting, health, nutrition, stress management, school readiness, father involvement groups, parent & child play groups and more. Our Parent Resource Center provides mothers, fathers and caregivers access to various parenting and educational books along with local community resources.
By participating in Parent Education classes mothers and fathers earn credits based on their attendance. These credits can then be exchanged for infant and toddler supplies such as diapers, baby food, clothing, accessories, toys and other children's items.
