Parenting Education Program

Overview

The Parenting Education program uses its network of seven cooperative preschools to offer a unique educational experience consisting of a child-centered preschool laboratory setting with adult-centered lectures and discussion groups. In the preschool classrooms, parents become active partners in their children’s education. Research supports the long-term benefits of this type of early parent involvement.

Skilled Shoreline faculty plan and implement learning opportunities for both parents and children. These learning experiences empower parents to build on their strengths while providing support as they become directly involved in their children's education.
