These eight-week classes are offered for parents of preschool age children in the spring semester and for parents of school age children in the fall semester.
COURT MANDATED PARENT EDUCATION Classes are offered in the evening to accommodate parents who must meet court required hours in Parent Education. These classes emphasize communication, responsibility, information on the stages of children’s development, as well as supportive strategies for parents.
