La Canada Presbyterian Church (LCPC) Parent Education Program is excited to announce the launching of their 2019 – 2020 EVENING Parent Express Program! Initially launched in 2017, Parent Express’s purpose is to provide evening education opportunities for parents who are unable to attend our widely popular daytime Parent Ed classes. These relevant and information packed sessions provide parents with a combination of small and large group discussions focusing on practical tools for the essential challenges facing today’s parents. Parent Express classes meet in the evenings for 4 weeks and are taught by our experienced Parent Ed instructors.

This year, Parent Ed is excited to expand our initial offerings to include something for parents of children in every age bracket. Classes include: Expectant and New Parents, Toddlers to Twos, Preschoolers, Elementary Kids, Tweens, Parenting Your Exceptional Child, and Parenting through the Phases. All classes are designed for parents only and typically meet from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. Registration is $100 for the first registrant and $25 for each additional registrant (spouse, partner, caretaker, grandparent, etc.). Registration is open online: or call 818-790-6758×205.

Kicking off its 41st year of helping families thrive, Parent Ed offers 16 daytime classes and 7 evening classes for parents of children 0-18 that provide education, friendship, and sustenance. Daytime classes include Parent-and-Child Classes where both children and adults form lasting friendships as well as receive valuable education from seasoned educators as well as Parent-Only Sessions to talk over the extra set of challenges that accompany raising elementary, tween and teen children. Parent and Child classes include Expectant and New Parents, Non-Separating Toddlers, Two-Year Olds, Parenting 3 – 4s, and Family Class.

Parents with school-aged children attend Parent-Only Sessions. Classes include Parents of Elementary Kids, Parents of Tweens, Parents of High Schoolers, Parenting Your Exceptional Child, Art of Fatherhood, and the new Grandparenting Class. Classes meet weekly September through May and attract over 600 participants from 22 different cities. Classes fill up quickly, so register ASAP!
