These classes provide a supportive group environment in which you can discuss child development, parenting skills, and topics of unique concern. Enrollment entitles you to:
Use the Family Center library.
Request an individual consultation with your parenting educator.
Bring babes-in-arms to class at no additional cost.
Receive a 20% discount for spouse/partner enrollment all semester.
In most classes, your children (birth through five, unless noted otherwise) are supervised in the same room (3 child minimum) by an early childhood educator and a volunteer.
Developmental Classes Learn about family and child development and related issues specific to your child's age. Each class focuses on a developmental level, beginning at infancy.
Adult/Child Learn & Do Together Classes These classes provide opportunities for children within specific age ranges and their accompanying adults to learn and have fun together. Activities are planned for the children's developmental level. Caregivers may generally attend these activities. Workshops for Parents Workshops focus on specific topics, generally within a two- to four-week period. Topics vary from those pertaining to younger children (e.g. play, schedules) to those focused on teens (e.g. peer influences, adolescent development). Some workshops provide an optional half-hour of gathering time.
