THE PARENTING CENTER

AT ABINGTON

Where parents come together for learning and support


Educational Workshops at PCA
January thru May, 2005 Parenting Education Programs


The Parenting Center at Abington is excited to be offering educational workshops in Abington Township once again this year. This is a community-wide program and we encourage parents to attend any workshops of interest to them, whether in a school or a community site, regardless of which school their child attends. You do not need to be a resident of Abington to attend our programs.

Workshop Topics:   Please feel free to call the Center (at 215-576-0586) for more information about the topics offered. Each workshop is lead by two trained Certified Parenting Educators and is based on well-established curriculum developed by Lakeside Youth Service's Parenting Resource and Education Network. Most workshops are two or more sessions in length, please try to attend all sessions of the workshop you are interested in as each session builds on the one/s before it.

Registration:    Pre-registration is required for all workshops. Please call the Center at 215-576-0586 to register.
