Creating Opportunities for Life-changing Ideas.
Family First Academy will facilitate educational programming that aims to strengthen the family dynamic. Parents will have opportunities to enroll in classes that will help them distinguish multiple solutions for problems that surface for our families and discern the most appropriate choice for their needs.
This includes, but is not limited to, nutritional guidance, positive 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 at Family First Academy to take home and make once a month. Supporting families to make healthy food choices is just one more way that we at Family First Academy are making a difference.
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 also be offered. Parents will be taught early childhood developmental stages, what toys are appropriate at what ages, and how to talk to children of different developmental stages. Not only will classroom opportunities be provided, parents will reciprocate 4 hours a month into 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.
