Parenting

Even Start knows that the parent is the child's first and best teacher. Even Start works with parents on the daily concerns and enjoyment of raising children. Parents discuss topics such as: non-violent discipline, nutrition, communication skills, and developmental stages.

PACT (Parent & Children Together) time allows parents and children to join together for fun, excited family activities daily.
