Greetings Parent Child
Ü families, |
Parent Child University offers a a wide variety of research-based programs that are both
fÜn and educational for both you and your child. We call this 2 for 1 (or more if 2 loving caregivers can come)! More than ever, Parent Child
Ü remains committed to offering parenting classes, after-school programs, birthday party entertainment, and child enrichment classes (Kindermusik, Signing Smart, ABC Music & Me, and Playground Diplomacy). Our
We know times are tough for a lot of families, so even when other companies are cutting back, we remain committed to offering fr*ee preview classes open to all and even give you a CD for coming! We also give you a CD or egg shaker for any friend you bring to your class who might register! In addition, we reward our friends (all participants) who refer friends to class through our Referral Rewards Program! You may also make up your classes at ANY of our other classes during that term. This is a HUGE cost savings so you attend the number of classes that you actually pay for!
Even in tough times, we are dedicated to continuing education and training at PCU. In February, I traveled to Florida to attend Dr. Becky Bailey's Conscious Discipline II training. It was a life-changing experience. Perhaps the best way to describe it is: last summer I learned Conscious Discipline at the CD I's week-long training; at CD II, I lived it with 50 people committed to doing the same. To find out more visit You Tube and type in Conscious Discipline. You will be glad you did (and your kids and significant others will be too)!
programs have been proven to make a positive difference in the lives of
children and families and we have the research to prove it! is our goal here at PCU. We have 6 instructors, 7 locations, and offer 8 different programs. This term we offer classes: EVERY day of the week (except Mondays - unless you want to schedule your own class at your home, brown-bag lunch site, playgroup, or school!
