Parenting classes are opportunities for parents, caregivers, or anybody who wants new ideas on raising children. Classes are curriculum based and meet one night per week. Parents Place offers several different classes to cover different aspects of raising children. Certificates of completion are awarded at the final session of the class if attendance and payment have been satisfied. The fee for our classes is $20 per week per person or $25 per week per couple but it can be adjusted if needed.
Childcare is currently unavailable due to a lack of space for parents and children. Please let us know if you are bringing children with you and bring them snacks and something to keep them busy during class.
Children in Between is $40 in person. Prices vary online. No scholarships or childcare available.
Ready for Kindergarten is free to attend thanks to the generosity of the United Way of Cowlitz County and The Red Hat thrift store.
Please fill out the Parents Place Class Registration Form and contact us to attend a class.
Please contact us if there is a class you wish to attend but is not being offered at the moment and we will fit it into the schedule as soon as possible.
