Interactive learning for families

A Great Start is an informative and interactive learning experience for parents and guardians of children, birth to 5 years old.

Parents, guardians, and expectant mothers benefit in several ways:

  • Gain knowledge about child development and key developmental milestones

  • Acquire knowledge about healthy family planning

  • Study techniques for family-centered problem-solving

  • Obtain tools for managing stress in their daily lives by using mindfulness practices

  • Receive certificates of completion and become examples of accomplishment

Recent participants report statistically significant reductions in anxiety and depression, and increases in mindfulness competencies. We offer dinner and childcare at each session. Classes typically run for eight weeks and will resume in spring 2018.
