Parenting Education

Parenting

 UPBeing a parent can be one of life’s most rewarding and yet challenging experiences. Most of our staff and volunteers are parents and so we understand that every parent needs some extra help at times. We are here to support you as you take on the responsibility of caring for a new life.

Whether you have one child, several, or are expecting your first baby, there is no end to learning about parenting. The lessons are as many as the surprises parents get raising children. Our parenting appointments are 60 minutes one-on-one sessions with one of our parenting coaches who will talk with you about your questions and concerns and offer continuing support as you take care of your infant or toddler.
