Creating Opportunities for Life-changing Ideas.
Family First Academy will facilitate educational programming that will aim to strengthen the family dynamic. Parents will have opportunities to enroll in classes that will help them distinguish multiple solutions for problems that surface and discern the most appropriate choice for their needs.
This includes, but is not limited to, nutritional guidance, positive interactive parenting and nurturing, budgeting and financial literacy.
FOOD PREPARATION CLASSES
Quality Food Produces Healthy Happy Kids
Good nutrition is key for growing children's physical and brain health and function. To ensure that families understand and can prepare a nutritious meal, parents will be offered cooking classes where they will be shown how to prepare high quality, kid friendly meals for their families. After learning how to cook one of our carefully designed meals, our parents will be offered the ingredients for a meal they have learned to cook to take home and make. Supporting families to make healthy food choices is just one more way that we at Family First Academy will make a difference.
CHILD DEVELOPMENT CLASSES
Understanding Child Development Makes Happier Families
Helping parents understand the needs of their children at all stages of development is key to better parenting. Child development classes will be offered to support this goal. Parents will be taught early childhood developmental, what toys are appropriate at which ages, and how to talk and interact with children at different developmental stages. Not only will classroom opportunities be provided, parents will be encouraged to spend time in their child's care setting where they will be mentored and skills modeled by our highly trained professionals. Skills learned will equip parents with the knowledge they need to be the best parents they can be.
