Learning for Life Received Excellent Reviews from Families

The Learning for Life Program received excellent reviews from participating families. All families who completed the anonymous Parent Satisfaction survey strongly agreed or agreed that the Learning for Life program has helped them understand their child’s development, handle stress, find resources, and has motivated them to try new parenting techniques when needed. Many families stated the program has helped them manage stress, meet other families, and work toward goals.

Parents were given an opportunity to leave comments on the survey.

Here are a few of the things they had to say about their parent educators:

  • “She is very kind and helps me understand my kids more. I love having my meetings with her”
  • “Helping my children with sharing, fighting/ working with others, and working with developing their sensory and motor skills”
  • “Knowing the development of my children and where they are at”
  • “Helping me understand how to help my child learn things and also how to act when they have an upset moment”
  • “We love Sara she always has great ideas and is always very helpful with any questions or concerns I have about my son.”

Way to go, parent educators Sara and Kaylee!!
