Circle of Parents

Circle of Parents provides a friendly, supportive environment led by parents and other caregivers. It's a place where anyone in a parenting role can openly discuss the successes and challenges of raising children and find support.


Circle of Parents offers the opportunity to participate in weekly, bimonthly, or monthly meetings with other parents to exchange ideas, share information, develop and practice new parenting skills, learn about community resources, and give and receive support. Groups are parent-led with the support of a trained group facilitator. They are conducted in a confidential and non-judgmental manner; are free of charge, and provide developmentally appropriate children's programs or child care concurrent with the parent group meetings.
