Parent & Family Educational Workshops

Individual workshops focused on common parenting challenges are offered throughout Hanover County, often in coordination with a local elementary school or through Hanover’s Parks & Recreation Department. A Parent Educator who specializes in child and adolescent development and family issues provides evidence-based strategies, information, and tools for your parenting “tool kit.”

Workshops generally last 60 – 90 minutes. A concurrent children’s workshop can also be scheduled addressing a parallel topic. Parenting workshops can also be scheduled by area businesses, day cares, faith-based groups, PTAs, Moms Clubs, and other community groups.
