Continuing education for parents is offered in both monthly parent discussion groups and in traditional parenting classes. They range in topic and focus and are led by the foremost authorities in the field. Mostly PARENTS JUST LIKE YOU! Childcare is often provided and fees are posted here along with the topic for the month. Check back often!
Parent Education: In its plan to support both the children and the families in our school, Town & Country enhances the educational environment by providing parent-education classes, speakers and discussions focusing on preschool through elementary-age children. Both monthly presentations and 6-week classes are offered during our school year. Monthly classes include topics of interest to the entire school community and are presented on a weekday afternoon from 12:30-2:00pm in our school library. These are free and free childcare is available to all T&C children.
6-week classes are offered three times per year: fall, winter, and spring focusing on the Adlerian philosophy used in our school. Books often used are Dr. Becky Kennedy’s book Good Inside in the fall, “Siblings without Rivalry” in the winter, and “Positive Discipline” or “STEP” (Systematic Training for Effective Parenting) in the spring. Classes combine reading, discussion, and problem-solving skills to build your parenting abilities. An afternoon class from 12:30-2:00 and an evening class from 6:00-7:30pm are offered each season. There is a $100 per person charge for the 6-week classes.
