The Nurturing Program(R) – Starts February 1st


NURTURING is the ability to care for and foster growth in yourself and others

 What is the Nurturing Program®?

The Nurturing Program is a series of 15 weekly classes for families to take together.  It is a strength-based program to help families incorporate new, positive, and nurturing patterns into their homes. Parents and children learn the same skills, although their teachers and classrooms are separate.

Your family will learn how to:

  • Handle feelings, recognize and communicate needs, and take charge of behavior
  • Handle stress and anger
  • Replace hitting and yelling with more positive discipline techniques
  • Recognize the need for nurturing touch
  • Establish nurturing routines like mealtimes, bedtimes, getting out of the house, chores, etc.
