The Parent Participation Program enhances parenting skills through classroom discussion, interaction and observation. Parent and child (age 0-6) attend class once a week. Curriculum includes teacher-led discussions on parenting techniques and strategies for creating a healthy family environment. Parents share their challenges and successes while children enjoy age-appropriate play indoors and outdoors, circle time, and songs. Interacting with other parents and children while participating in the classroom environment gives parents a greater understanding of the needs and abilities of their children.
Parent participation instructors hold California teaching credentials.

If you are mandated to complete a parenting class, verify approval of an online class (rather than a traditional class) with the mandating agency. Each state, county, and individual judge may dictate different requirements. If you are court ordered to take a co-parenting class, it is always best to check with your county court of record to verify their acceptance of an online parenting class.
Each state, county, and individual judge may dictate different requirements.
