Parenting Preschoolers classes are interactive group discussions with our director, Molly Gareis. Parents’ questions and needs guide the discussion, and you’ll find that you’ll learn a lot from listening to fellow parents!
All classes will meet in Miles Hall (above Co-op). Each Co-op family is required to attend at least one Parenting Preschoolers session over the course of the school year. You’re welcome to attend as many as you’d like.
