Parent Education Network Workshops are offered in three formats:
Workshops are typically 1.5 to 2 hours long and are held on a single evening. Special workshops might run on a weekend day and last several hours, depending on the topic. In just a short time, parents can learn all coping strategies for positive parenting.
Courses meet once a week for 2 hours over 4 to 6 weeks. Courses are lively, participatory, idea-filled exchanges. The multi-week format creates a problem-solving environment, and gives parents an opportunity to try new ideas at home, come back to class, discuss, and refine their skills.
Custom Parenting Classes
In addition to our regularly scheduled workshops and courses, we can hold a class just for you!
P.E.N. can bring our regular workshops and courses directly to your door. But we can also customize them just for your school, workplace, house of worship, community centre, neighbourhood group, book club, etc. It’s fun to learn and grow with your friends and co-workers! If you have a brilliant idea for a new class, call us! We can design something tailored to the specific interests and needs of your group.
We welcome requests from schools, businesses, or community/religious groups. We can provide day or evening presentations at your location. Whether it’s a “Lunch & Learn” session, or a single night, or a multi-week series, we can work with you.
