La Canada Presbyterian Church’s Parent Education Program is excited to announce a new program offering coming this fall … Parent Express for Parents of Tweens (5th through 8th graders). This class, taught by seasoned instructor, Paige Dunbar, will provide a month-long opportunity for parents who cannot attend our daytime classes to participate in Parent Ed. Tween classes feature large and small group discussion relating to pre-adolescent issues such as peer relationships, family communication, puberty, and school adjustments. Discussion topics will include: “The Tween Brain and Physical Development,” “Creating a Sense of Belonging at Home and School,” and “How to Effectively Maintain Boundaries,” to name a few. Classes will run on October 4, 11, 18, and 25 from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. at LCPC—and the rate is only $80/4-week session (which is a family rate covering both parents if they want to attend).

Registration is now open for Parent Express and all of Parent Ed’s 2017 – 2018 class offerings. Entering its 39th year, Parent Ed offers 15 classes for parents of children 0-18 that provide education, friendship, and sustenance. Parents of newborns through age five attend joint Parent-and-Child Classes where both children and adults form lasting friendships as well as receive valuable education from seasoned educators. Classes include New Babies, Babies, and Older Babies, Non-Separating Toddlers, Two-Year Olds, Parenting 3 – 4s, and Family Class.

Parents with school-aged children attend Parent-Only Sessions to talk over the extra set of challenges that accompany raising elementary, tween and teen children. Classes include Parents of Elementary Kids, Parents of Tweens, and Parents of High Schoolers. Classes meet weekly September through May and attract approximately 400 participants from 22 different cities. Classes fill up fast, so don’t wait to register!

Please go to for class listings, staff bios, and online registration. Scholarships and payment plans are available online. Affordable childcare is offered during all class times. La Canada Presbyterian Church is located at 626 Foothill in La Canada.
