Starr King Parent-Child Workshop

https://starrking-pcw.org

At Starr King, guided by child-development professionals, parents learn with their children and see their children’s world expand. For more than 65 years, Starr King has attracted a diverse population of parents who are interested in being actively involved in their children’s learning during the precious preschool years and also in developing their own parenting skills. Together they explore and experiment in the beautiful organic environment Starr King offers. Working and learning together cooperatively with other parents creates a true community. For many families, the school community provides a support system and social network and even an extended family.
