 Classes are for parents and their children (ages newborn through 5 year olds). Emphasis
 is on the role the parent plays in raising children. Parents participate in class discussions,
 engage in opportunities to develop and promote positive parenting skills and create support
 systems with other parents. Activities are designed for the parents to promote and facilitate
 the child’s physical, intellectual and emotional development.

                               Classes register for 18 weeks.
                           The fee is for January 24-June 3, 2011.
   Infant, Toddler and 2-year old classes require parent/caregiver to attend class with child.
