Our Mission

Our mission is to educate and support parents and caregivers to raise their children in emotionally healthy ways in which children can thrive personally, socially and academically.

Mission Statement

The Centre for Parenting Education positively impacts children by helping their parents and those who work with parents enhance their knowledge, skills, and attitudes regarding parenting. The Centre focuses on training, service, and research in order to have a broad impact in facilitating the healthy growth and development of children.

Our Goal

Centre for Parenting Education is built upon families’ strengths by providing parents with the information, skills and principles essential for children to become caring, competent, responsible and resilient.  By incorporating these key protective factors into their relationship with their children, parents foster their children to becoming productive citizens in our society and our communities becoming healthier and safer for families and for children.

Children acquire the abilities to be successful from the people who are most intensely involved with them, we believe that parenting is the most important and challenging job any of us can have; yet, it receives little support or recognition in our society.  There is very little formal training for this task and parents are often isolated and without adequate support networks.  Our programs address these needs of parents in our communities.

 Our Programs

The Centre for Parenting Education offers support throughout the parenting life cycle, including:

educational workshops

online Library of parenting articles

parenting coaching

recommended parenting books

online resource directory

Our online classes, led by certified Parenting Educators, are lively and interactive and enable participants to share experiences and learn from each other. Parents are given opportunities to practice the skills they learn so that they will come away with information that they understand, remember and can apply in their everyday lives with their children.

By emphasizing the importance of providing children with a balance of unconditional love as well as the need for setting firm and reasonable limits, we strive to empower parents with the skills necessary for raising responsible children in today’s world.

Our Beliefs

At Centre for Parenting Education, we believe that parenting is the most important job.  It is also one of the most difficult and challenging, as well as rewarding and enriching of life’s experiences.  We believe there are no perfect parents and no perfect children. All parents deserve credit for their efforts to raise their children well and they are doing the best job they can in their parenting.  We believe that each family is unique and deserves to be highly valued, respected and supported. We believe that healthy parenting can be learned and it is never too late to make changes that will improve relationships and build a child’s self-esteem.

We offer a preventative, proactive focus toward healthier parenting.

We teach parents skills and information that current research indicates is most effective in creating an environment that produces resilient, confident, socially competent children.

Building upon a family’s existing strengths, we help parents to become critical thinkers, intentional about their parenting decisions, and advocates for their families.

We nurture and empower parents in a safe atmosphere without blame or criticism. This is the optimal learning environment.

All parents can benefit from parenting education and support programs we offer.
