Raising Healthy Children Program

The goal of the Raising Healthy Children Program is to help parents and caregivers learn about child development and new parenting skills.  Participate in programming to learn about resources and organizations in the community.  Students can earn 1 high school credit while in the program, and will learn about options for additional credits through Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR).

"The program allows you and your child to meet and interact with other parents and their children while gaining in depth knowledge about children's development.  I enjoyed the many resourceful workshops that were offered, and the teacher is simply amazing!" -Keturah
