A Parent's Guide to the First Five Years

Free

with Kids Free to Grow Staff, Sacopee Valley Adult & Community Education

Parenting can be easy and fun but it doesn’t come with a handbook. You sometimes learn as you go. If you have a newborn to five-year old or are a caregiver or foster parent of a young child, this class is specifically designed for you. Enhance your parenting skills and techniques emphasizing cooperation, self-esteem, and responsibility through a caring and nurturing approach to working with young children. Leave the workshop empowered, validated, and with a toolbox full of new skills. Please note: This component is for the parents and/or adult caregivers. Child care is not available. No Meeting April 16. Please preregister as we need a minimum of 2 people to run this course.
