Parent/Caregiver Workshops

When parents and caregivers learn new parenting skills, their children benefit and so do our communities! Parents/caregivers are their children’s first and most important teacher!

The Chicago Parent Program is for parents and caregivers of children ages 2-5 to develop parenting strategies and skills. The workshop series helps parents/caregivers be the best they can be and, in the process, promote healthy development in their children. Over the course of the 7 weekly workshops, parents/caregivers learn to clarify what they truly value as a caregiver and identify the behaviors they want to reinforce in their children. Participants in the Chicago Parent Program acquire a range of strategies and gain confidence while also meeting and learning from other parents and caregivers raising young children in the community. Child care is provided at each session. Email to express interest in this program! 

Monthly Parent/Caregiver Workshops range from crash-courses in potty training, to cooking with kids. A wide variety of community partners host these workshops, which offer parents and caregivers ongoing opportunities to learn new ways to be their child’s first and most important teacher. Parent Workshops are open to all and are free. To see what workshops are coming up, view the Family Calendar on the Parenting Resource Program page, or visit our events page.
