YOU…are your child’s first and most important “teacher.”
Years of evidence based research has yielded today’s parent the benefit of having the most reliable information ever available on young children and their patterns of growth and development. A child is born learning and continues to learn in many different ways. One of the most important ways is through their interactions with their parent(s) and those around them.
The Parenting Cottage helps parents learn to be their child’s first & most important “teacher” through play and interactions. Parenting education in many different areas also helps parents appreciate many of the joys of parenting while also learning how to handle even the most challenging areas of parenting.
Our programs have an emphasis on serving families expecting a baby through kindergarten entry.
Programs are implemented by educators holding a minimum of a Bachelor’s Degree in the fields of Education, Early Childhood Education, Human Development & Family Studies as well as associated fields. Educators are also further certified in the evidence based educational models implemented through our programs.
