Family Life Education

Together We Learn



Be part of your child's learning through a parent education program that fosters the growth and development of parents and children with hands-on learning. The Family Life Education department offers classes to parents and caretakers of young children.

Our mission is to work in partnership with families in nurturing the development of children through parent education and support.

We have ten cooperative community preschools and offer Parent/Child classes at the Center for Families. We also provide parenting education for Snohomish County Head Start.


This Winter, 2021, we are offering a special online class - Supporting Parents through Distance Learning!

We recognize the stressful and unexpected position parents are facing due to the worldwide health crisis. While there is no manual to help parents approach remote learning in the best ways, we do know and value the importance of parent support and connection. Our weekly class will provide you with research-based best practices to help your family in this new educational model. In addition, this class will foster connections with others who are also having this unique experience of being caregiver, teacher's assistant, coach, and playmate.

Our program is designed to benefit children and their adults

Our infant and toddler programs involve a two-hour class, one day per week. Sessions run for ten weeks during Fall, Winter and Spring Quarters.

Learn more about the Infant/Toddler Program.

Teachers provide age appropriate experiences for the children and opportunities for parents to support their child's growing needs through planned classroom activities. The program is designed to benefit both parents and children. A typical class includes parent-supervised activities, such as music, snack and active times.
