“It is not the parent who seems to do it all perfectly who is to be admired. It is the one who recognizes his or her own failings and is willing to keep growing.” Dr. H. Wallace Goddard

These parenting seminars are included in tuition for adult members of SSC Cooperative Preschools.  Attending one seminar fulfills the requirement for one quarter – but you may attend as many as you like.  Partners, nannies, grandparents welcome!   Not a current Co-op member?  Contact the instructor to see if there is space.

Adults only please unless noted in the class description.

RSVP is required – please visit our calendar page to do so, or contact your parent educator.
