First Five Years

Children don’t come with a manual, but if you know what to expect at each age and developmental stage, parenting can be less challenging and more enjoyable.  These classes are based on discussion, video and a workbook.  Have some fun as we share how to connect with your child in a way that will help them thrive and help you feel supported.

This 3-part series is perfect for parents and caregivers of children from birth to age 5.  Learn More.
