Yankton County Parents as Teachers, Participating Agency with United Way of Greater Yankton, is offering Bright Start Responsive Parenting Classes this weekend here in Yankton. The classes are designed for parents, guardians and caregivers of children from pre-natal to 3 years of age.

The Responsive Parenting Classes will be held at Avera Professional Office Pavilion, Conference Room 3 Saturday, Oct. 12, and Sunday, Oct. 13, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. both days. Attendance both days is required, and a certificate of completion will be provided to participants.

The classes work to explain how to match a parent’s expectations with developmental stages and temperaments. Class materials have been updated and work to help assist, educate and guide parents and caregivers with their individual needs and the uniqueness of each child. The class will also examine early child development, age appropriate activities, discipline and stress management.

Class size is limited and registration is required. Participants may call Carie Jo Ahlgrim at 605-661-4833 or send email to yanktonpat@gmail.com
