Mission: Washington State Community and Technical College Parenting Education builds stronger and healthier families through adult and adult-child learning environments.


Setting up Families for Success

Early childhood programs involving both parents and children are more effective than programs focusing exclusively on children. Participation in the Parenting Education programs offers an opportunity for parents to become directly involved in the education of their children and to be involved in their own education as parents and caregivers. Children whose parents are involved in their education and learning are more successful in school. Washington’s community and technical colleges provide programs that allow parents to develop skills and abilities to help their children be successful in school and relationships.
