Playgroups give parents the opportunity to support each other through sharing their ideas and questions about experiences in parenting. Don't miss out on this exciting developmental opportunity for your child. Please call Clarion County's Promise for times and locations.

 

Parent Educators

Parent educators offer home visits and also conduct screenings to make sure that the child is on task developmentally. If any child is found to have a developmental delay through these screenings, the child is then referred to the appropriate local agency by the parent educator.

A parent educator plans, coordinates, and teaches an instructional program that addresses the intellectual, emotional, cultural, social, or physical needs of both parents and children. Parent education seeks to support respectful, reciprocal interactions between parents and their children.

A wide range of parenting techniques are presented, in addition to many resources for parents. Parent educators have access to numerous community supports available in the Clarion County area that parents may need.

Parent educators also serve families of preteens/teens, addressing family conflicts and responsible behavior.

These FREE programs are available to all parents, regardless of socioeconomic circumstances, living within the boundaries of Clarion County school districts.
