We Offer the Following Training Programs

Parenting Education Program

Parenting can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience, but it can also be both challenging and stressful. A parent’s role is one that requires skills and information to be successfully carried out. Often, well-intentioned but uninformed parents make decisions that can negatively impact their child and family for years to come.

Firefly Children and Family Alliance’s parenting education program equips parents with skills to deal with the many unknowns of raising a child. Our experienced and caring instructors help guide you through the developmental needs of your child, as well as strategies to effectively manage challenging behavior. Because each period of a child’s development requires certain tools and strategies, we offer different classes for specific age ranges.

Our parenting education program seeks to help adults within our community become better prepared, better-informed parents. This program is also offered in Spanish.

Safe Sleep

Safe sleep is among the most important factors for new parents to master. Safe sleep can help protect babies from dangers including sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and other dangers, including choking and suffocation. The goal of our safe sleep training is to decrease the number of infant deaths caused by unsafe sleep practices. Safe sleep classes are offered by Firefly Children and Family Alliance once a month. Individuals who participate in our safe sleep class receive an infant survivor kit, which includes a pack-n-play, a wearable blanket, a pacifier and take-home recommendations.
