WHY IT MATTERS:
Being the parent of a baby, toddler or preschooler can be challenging.

And that can make a big difference for you, your child and your entire family.
WHAT IT IS:
Parents of young children attend a free series of group classes over a number of weeks. Classes are led by trained parent educators and discuss a variety of topics, such as, positive parenting practices, self regulation, development, and early language and literacy.
