The well being of children, their senses of self, their values and their perspectives on the world are greatly shaped by those charged with their care.
Carlmont Parents Nursery School's parenting seminars offer you a unique opportunity to get that operating manual for your child that you've always wanted. These seminars are held two evenings a month, covering relevant and useful topics ranging from ages and stages, sibling rivalry, school readiness, children's friends, time management, effective communication with children, limit setting and more. You may even request specific seminar topics based on your need for information or guidance at a given time.
Seminars are led by our credentialed teachers and by occasional guest speakers. Either parent, or both, may attend each seminar. Sharing concerns or experiences on a parenting issue helps you gain perspective and support. It provides you and your partner an opportunity to improve your set of skills.
The best part of the parenting seminars is that it is simply time to be with your friends. It's not only a time to talk about family issues without your child listening, but a scheduled adult play date.
The availability of real-time parenting coaching and support for families is a phenomenal resource that everyone needs at one time or another (a $75 per hour value).
"The invaluable parent education classes and preschool program offered by CPNS provided our young family with the tools to successfully deal with many parenting issues and gave us a wonderful sense of belonging to the community. During my 25 years on the staff at Central Elementary, I have been delighted to find that many of the parents who are actively involved in their child's education and school activities are also alumni of CPNS."Kathie McNulty, Central Elementary School Secretary, CPNS Parent 1979 - 1982
