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
  • And so much more!

Parenting Classes

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.
