Parent Education Program


PEP Banner

The Parent Education Program is a free, voluntary program designed to foster an early partnership between home and school. The program is available for all expectant families as well as families with children birth to age three.

The goal of the PEP program is to strengthen the capacity of parents to be effective first teachers in providing children the best possible start in life, maximize a child's overall development during those first three years, lay the foundation for school success, and minimize developmental problems that interfere with the child's learning.
