Start Parent Infant in your community!
Learning Together Education offers training and mentoring to assist you in starting a program in your or to support you in running an existing program.
What is a Parent Infant Community?
The Parent Infant (or ) Community is a class that one or both parents attend with their child under three. Parent Infant may meet one or more times per week. Sessions are usually 90 minutes long. There one facilitator and up to 10 families per class.
Where can I hold a class?
Classes may be held in any safe place that can be set up for class: a church, school, community center, or even in a home. The setup includes a quilt, and mobiles for the babies, small tables and chairs for older infants and toddlers, and shelves that contain a variety of activities - take a look at our photos. The child chooses activities according to his or her own interest. Children explore, observe.
The goal is to educate parents while their children are still young. Parents learn to be observant and gain of their child. Parents have the opportunity to learn effective parenting skills and create healthy routines from early on. Parent Infant is for EVERY family. We all struggle sometimes, we all love our children and want to do our best. I have been involved in for more than twenty years. Over those years, I have researched other programs, and I have seen nothing better for families. It is with full confidence that I say, " is the BEST beginning!".
If you want to make a life-changing difference for families in only a few hours per week, we hope you will consider creating a Parent-Infant program.
Our dream is to have this kind of support available to families in every town... that all parents would have access to the education they need to assist development and prevent problems.
