Family Education Workshops
Our workshops focus on practical parenting and skill building to help parents gain tools in effective parenting. We have recently been in the process of curriculum re-development to provide consistent material to all parents, free of charge. These workshops are two hours long and are currently held through partnerships with the Missoula County Public School System and Confederated Salish Kootenai Tribes. Your child does NOT need to attend one of the schools for you to participate.
Upcoming CSKT workshops (Held at the main tribal complex):
June 24th: Young Kids- Positive Parenting
July 29th: Communicating So Kids will Hear
August 26th: Young Kids- Cooperation, Kindness, & Compassion
September 30th: Kids- Managing Emotions
Individual Training Certificates will be given, and earned early childhood credits are available for childcare providers. For a list of classes pertinent to childcare providers, please refer to the Lifelong Learning Center course catalog.
