Garden City Parent University

Parent University was a great success!

Parent University, now in its third year, had 629 seats reserved for thirteen different workshops. Feedback received from attendees was very positive. 

“Loved it… I've gone every year… Thank you so much for doing this… Very much appreciated and provided a lot of value for parents in Garden City!”

“Fantastic! Helpful information I can use for my children.”

Thank you to the many parents and caregivers that attended Garden City Parent University on Thursday, February 2, 2017.  See you next year!

What is Parent University?

Parent University is an evening set-aside for parents and caregivers of children in grades Pre-K to 12 to participate in a series of workshops facilitated by area professionals and district personnel. The free workshops are sponsored by community organizations, including educators, to best reflect current topics and trends. It is an opportunity to sharpen parents’ skills as we work together to raise healthy, well-adjusted, and successful children. Studies prove when communities, caregivers, and educators work together to create supportive and safe environments for children to grow and learn – they thrive.
