Coastal Families Together has parenting education classes starting in Yachats later this month and in Toledo in early May. Classes come with a nutritional family-style meal and childcare. Parents of children age 5-10 can sign up for “Incredible Years.” The class is designed to give parents a greater understanding of child development, effective discipline and will strengthen the role of the parent. The class begins Tuesday, April 24, and continues once a week for ten weeks. Dinner is served at 6:00 p.m., and the class runs from 6:30 – 8:00 at the Yachats Commons (441 No. Highway 101), Room 8.
The “Making Parenting a Pleasure” class in Toledo is held in conjunction with Central Coast Child Development Center. The class focuses on parents of children 0-9 years of age. Parents learn the need for self-care and personal empowerment, and moving from adult-to-adult focus to an adult/child/family emphasis. Class begins Wednesday May 9 and continues once a week for ten weeks. Class will be held in the Central Coast Child Development Center, 1811 NE Arcadia Drive, Toledo from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
