Early Childhood Family Education Resources
Supporting Parents of Young Learners
We offer a variety of ways to support you in your parenting journey:
- Parenting Classes
- One-on-one visits
- Community Toy Lending Library

Many of our classes offer times for parents to learn with their children along with learning separately from their children. We also offer parent-only classes that meet weekly or biweekly. These classes are here to support you in your parenting journey.
- Provide support for a child’s optimal physical, intellectual, social, and emotional development during the important first years of life
- Promote informed, realistic attitudes and expectations about raising children
- Offer child development information and a variety of parenting techniques
- Help create effective communication in families
- Provide information on resources available in the community
Parent-only and parent-child classes are listed in our ECFE Class Catalog.
