PARENTING with a PURPOSE
“Parenting today is different than parenting yesterday. The world is different. The issues are different.
So, the approach to parenting needs to be different.” -Dr. Bob Barnes
Parenting with a Purpose (PWP) is a parenting and early childhood program that strives to:
- REACH out to parents.
- ENGAGE parents in positive parenting.
- PROMOTE early learning experiences.
- SUPPORT parents in doing developmental-centered parenting.
- PREPARE children five years old and under for kindergarten.

We offer Parent Connect Groups (PCG), Home Visitation, Parent Cafés, Parent-Child Interaction (PCI) Field Trips and Parent Pantry (Incentive Program).
We believe in positive parenting! A parent is a child’s teacher and guide in their early learning. Children (5 years old and under) who receive positive parenting, healthy and supportive structure in their overall development from their parents have a better chance at being successful in kindergarten and adult life. We embrace a practical and biblical approach quoted in Proverbs 22:6, “Train a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
PARENT CONNECT GROUPS
A nine session class reflecting on varies topics incorporating positive parenting and early childhood learning. We offer the following Parent Connect Groups:
- INFANTS (6 weeks-1 years old)
- TODDLERS (2-3 years old)
- PRESCHOOLERS (4-5 years old)
- FATHER’S PARENTING

A PWP Parenting Coach will meet with participants to expound on Parent Connect Groups (PCG) topics or an area that they would like to work on in their parenting.
PARENT-CHILD INTERACTION FIELD TRIPS
Parents/ Caregivers along with their children experience three highly-interactive field trips from June to August. Each field trip helps encourage parents to take their children to explore different places geared around early childhood learning.
PWP hosts and facilitates monthly Parent Café. Parent Cafés are great opportunity for parents / caregivers to come together to share the joys and challenges of parenting and receive some practical approaches to early childhood learning.
