Parent Participation Program

Join the Fun and Make Friends at Parent Participation!    

Attend class once a week with your child for a 15 week semester.

Come to class with your infant, toddler, or preschooler, and learn about the developmental stage of your little one while forming connections with other parents. Credentialed teachers provide opportunities for imaginative play, singing, art, sensory exploration, cooperative experiences and outdoor fun. Strengthen your parenting skills through guided discussions, guest speakers, and focused observation of your child. All adults in a parenting role are welcome (including nannies and grandparents.)  View class descriptions by clicking on View Classes & Register, then scroll down to your child's age group.  Because we are part of the Adult School, and parents attend our classes with their children, parents/caregivers must register themselves for classes (not their children.)

IMMUNIZATIONS for Parent Participation Classes    Our office checks CAIR (California Immunization Registry) for children attending classes. (Medical Exemptions must also be listed in CAIR.)  Those with records that are not up to date or missing will be contacted by our office. Click here  for information about immunization requirements. 


San Luis Coastal Adult School has short-term funding to provide Parent Participation classes and Co-operative Preschool for low and moderate income families who qualify. Families demonstrating financial need are eligible for the Tuition Assistance Program, which waives class fees or monthly tuition.  To apply for the program, please review and complete the PPP Tuition Assistance Application Form, include the required documentation, and submit to our office.
