This program was developed by and for Latino parents with children 0-5 years of age. The curriculum promotes school readiness and parent advocacy, addressing language development, early literacy, bilingualism, health, socio-emotional wellness, parent leadership and planning for family success.

We are pleased to report that fifteen instructors came for the two-day training.  This was a great learning opportunity and we are pleased that so many took advantage of the training.

Sarah Watamura finalThe Parenting Success Network will be hosting our 4th annual free speaking event on Monday, May 22, 2017.  Location and times are still to be determined, but will be posted as soon as possible.

This year’s speaker is going to be Dr. Sarah Enos Watamura, who will be speaking at the OSU Parenting Education Conference earlier in the day, and then will be coming to speak to local parents that evening.  Dr. Watamura is a developmental psychobiologist whose research interests center on the consequences of stress experienced in early childhood. She will be speaking to us about family stress and buffering processes in families with young children, and the costs of stress exposure on health, development and achievement.

We hope that you will put us on your calendar and plan to attend.
