Nurturing Parenting Program

The Nurturing Parenting Program is an evidenced-based and family-centered parenting class focused on nurturing skill development and creating healthy child-rearing practices. It provides parents with age appropriate and effective tools for positive behavior management.  

The program runs for nine week sessions every fall and spring. Classes are offered one evening a week and each family can have up to three home visits with our Parent Facilitator. The parents and children meet in separate spaces. The class is a group based setting with four to ten parents. Each session provides family dinner with both parents and children and childcare. For parents of children age 0-11.
