Parenting is the hardest job you will ever have -- CPI is here to help.
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. Although many classes are held at the Parent Education Center in southwest Santa Rosa, others are conveniently located throughout Sonoma County.

- Our Parent Education Center is located at 3642 Standish Ave, Santa Rosa.
- The cost for class is per person unless otherwise indicated.
