Participant feedback:

The Family Connectors University class was a wealth of practical ideas, and definitely worth the time investment!”

“…the conversations about self-care, supporting our kids’ social emotional growth, dealing with “big feelings” and recommendations on supporting reading and math were fantastic.”

“Implementing just a few of these ideas brought the pressure level in our ‘locked-down’ household from a 9 to a 2.”

“I loved the chance to have one hour to myself each week to get ideas for helping my child and talk with other parents.”

Parents can participate synchronously or asynchronously, as sessions will be recorded.

The course is facilitated by NSC Parent Education Instructor Lea Evans, SPS Director of Professional Development Janine Roy, SPS Family Partnerships Coordinator Asosa Sailiai, and special guest speakers.

The cost for the 2-unit class is $37.08 and some scholarships are available.
