These are real-time virtual zoom sessions taught by a certified parenting educator. A welcome email with zoom information will go out a week before classes start. Please download Zoom and set reminders to attend! A laptop/tablet will be a better experience to interact, see the presentation and videos, etc. rather than a mobile phone. Sign into Zoom with the name you RSVP’d with to help your teacher track your attendance if you are interested in receiving a participation certificate.

If you are needing extra supports for attendance, please contact Diana: [email protected] 541-734-5150 x1050
