Parent Education Engagement

319 parents of children ages 0-6 participated in an evidenced based parenting education class series in 2013-14.  80% of those parents reported increased parenting skills.

Families are children’s first and most important teachers, yet too many parents feel ill-equipped for the hard and important work of parenting. It is often said, “Kids don’t come with instructions,” which is why the Central Oregon Parenting Education Collaborative works to deliver evidence-based, high quality parenting education classes for parents of children prenatal to age six throughout our region. With these high quality parenting education programs families build their capacity to succeed in this most critical role of supporting their children’s early learning and development. When families know more, children (and our community) reap the long-term benefits.
