Free Parenting Class

"Parenting a Preschooler" is a FREE series of 3 once-a-week classes for parents of young children held in the library this Fall on Oct 29 and Nov 5 & 12.

Just 90 minutes in length each week, this course won the 2004 Best Practices in Early Learning award from the state organization, Pennsylvania Public Libraries. It is based on a comprehensive course written by national parenting experts including Michael H. Popkin, Ph.D of Active Parenting. Our mini-course is taught by Joan Polk, a nurse for the Boyertown Area School Ditsrict.

Mothers and fathers are invited to register for these 3 classes in which they will gain confidence in raising their young children; gain understanding of the power of encouragement and appropriate discipline; and learn what are realistic expectations to have as their children grow.

With the cooperation of a local Girl Scout Troop we will be able to offer babysiting/story/activity times for the children of participating parents.

Pre-registration is required. Please stop in or call the library to sign up. 610-369-0496
