Preparing Children for Life

Partners in Parenting

There’s nothing that can fully prepare you to raise a child. It’s all new, different and not always easy. That’s why The Children’s Trust wants to be your partner in parenting by offering evidence-based programs tailor-made for every parent. Trained parenting educators, who may be family coaches, social workers or mental health clinicians, provide the training and support you’ll need to help you prepare your child for lifelong success.

You Are Your Child’s First Teacher. As children grow, challenges arise.
These challenges may leave you with a lot of questions and feeling overwhelmed by the pressure to be a good parent. A parenting educator can help you and your family feel comfortable to be your child’s best first teacher. Learning how to become “parent and teacher” is a critical step in helping your child thrive in every stage of life.

Where To Access Help

Home Visits
For some, nothing matches the comfort and convenience of being at home where you may feel safest and most secure.

The support of other parents, learning side by side with you in a group setting can be both comforting and encouraging.

Office Visits
If home visitation or group-parenting programs don’t seem right for you, there are also individual, parenting support services available in office settings.
