Our Parent Education classes are provided free of charge and are available to anyone who wants to learn how to become a better parent. Classes give parents new techniques and information so they have a better understanding of their own parenting style, have better communication with their children, improve their ability to discipline in a positive way, and become the best parents they can be. We use the Nurturing Parenting curriculum and classes run in eight-week cycles that parents can join at any time. Our trained facilitators cover topics like building empathy in children, fostering independence, developing age appropriate expectations, maintaining appropriate roles, barriers to positive parenting, and positive discipline techniques.
Class times are Tuesdays 10am-noon and Thursdays 6pm-8pm. We offer specialized workshops for teachers, daycare providers and community members periodically, and certificates for daycare providers needing proof of training for licensure are available. Parents must complete an assessment prior to joining the Parent Education program. Please call 517-787-7920 for more information.
