Parent University

 

Parenting is a lifelong process. Join us for *free* parenting workshops taught by professionals. Meet with and be supported by other parents.

Mountain View Parent U is a series of District-offered parent workshops designed to address interests, issues or concerns of parents with children of all ages, backgrounds and educational status.

The philosophy of the Parent University is that parenting is an ongoing and lifelong process. The purpose is to offer opportunities for parents to learn about specific topics from professionals with expertise in the focus area.

The workshops provide a venue for parents to meet other parents with similar interests and to share challenges and successes with others in a positive and nonthreatening environment.

Provided at many workshops (check details on each): Spanish translation, child care and transportation. Doors open at 6 p.m., and many events will feature tables with resources for parents.
