Early Childhood Development

Positive Discipline

For parents with children 1-5 years of age.

Our early childhood development program is for parents with children of 1-5 years of age and is based on the S.T.E.P. (Systematic Training for Effective Parenting) program. This 6-week, 12-hour course provides knowledge and skills in the following areas:

Lead by a parent educator or early childhood specialist, parents discuss current challenges and learn effective strategies that encourage mutual respect.

Parent Coaching

Parenting challenges often include issues related to sleep, discipline, toileting, mealtimes, sibling rivalry or other behavioral concerns. One-on-one coaching with early childhood specialists will help you explore alternatives, generate solutions and enrich the parenting experience.
