Classes

Parenting is the hardest job you will ever have -- CPI is here to help.

At the heart of our mission at CPI is our commitment to protecting the children and families in our community. Because of this, we are currently conducting all of our parenting classes online until we can safely reopen the doors of our Family Resource Center.

CPI offers classes to parents of children ages 0-18. Each class is led by a trained parent educator who provides tools that parents can adapt to their own family's needs. All CPI classes have a strong child development foundation, supporting the belief that each child and parent brings unique needs and temperament to family life. Again, all classes are currently being conducted online. 

Some important things to remember:

- CPI Online Classes will be hosted via Zoom. If you have any questions about joining a Zoom meeting, Zoom has created a helpful video about how to join a meeting through an email invite. Click here to watch!

La crianza de los hijos es el trabajo más difícil que jamás tendrá y CPI está aquí para ayudarlo.

En el corazón de la misión de CPI está nuestro compromiso de proteger a los niños y las familias de nuestra comunidad. Debido a esto, actualmente estamos llevando a cabo todas nuestras clases para padres en línea hasta que podamos volver a abrir las puertas de nuestro Centro de Recursos para Familias de manera segura.

CPI ofrece clases a padres de niños de 0 a 18 años. Cada clase está dirigida por un educador de padres capacitado que proporciona herramientas que los padres pueden adaptar a las necesidades de su propia familia. Todas las clases de CPI tienen una base sólida de desarrollo infantil, que respalda la idea de que cada niño y padre contribuye necesidades y temperamento únicos a la vida familiar. Nuevamente, todas las clases se llevan a cabo actualmente en línea.

Algunas cosas importantes para recordar:

- Las clases en línea de CPI se ofrecerán a través de Zoom. Si tiene alguna pregunta sobre cómo puede participar a una reunión de Zoom, Zoom ha creado un video útil enseñado come participar en una reunión a través de una invitación por correo electrónico. Haga clic aquí para ver!
