What We Offer:

Entering its 37th year, the Parent Education program offers something for all families with children 0-18!

Weekly Parent Child Classes are for parents and their children ranging in ages from infants to five-years old.  Parent-Only classes are offered for parents of school-age children ranging from K through 12th grade.

For children, it is an opportunity to spend one-on-one time with mom or dad, while exploring a rich and varied environment with children their own age. For parents, there are discussions on pertinent parenting issues led by a staff of caring teachers specially trained in child development, education, and family counseling.  Teacher assistants, who are also experienced with children, facilitate confidence and comfort–as well as maintaining a stimulating and safe environment.

Parent Ed. is a program that nurtures parents and children in a Christian atmosphere. One of the greatest benefits is the encouragement and support parents receive on their parenting journey.

For 37 years LCPC’s Parent Education Program has maintained its legacy of quality education & reputable staff. Approximately 450 parents and children from 22 cities come to campus every week for classes–driving from a 30 miles radius of La Canada. “I’ve been in Parent Ed for 5 years, starting when my daughter was 8 weeks old. It’s nearly impossible to summarize how much I have learned from this program, said Pasadena mom, Jill Longo. “The teachers are always spot on with timely topics for my children’s development, my children look forward to it every week, and it’s a highlight of my week as well.”
