Parent Smart classes are perfect for parents committed to their child’s education. We strongly believe that parents are a child’s first teacher. At Parent Smart parents actively participate in their child’s classroom. Parents learn, both in the classroom and during parenting seminars, child development theories and practice effective parenting skills. Children participate in readiness skills as they learn to love school!
