The Parenting Center at Children's Hospital
The Parenting Center—Helping Parents Grow!

The Parenting Center provides a place where parents can develop competence and confidence in raising children. Membership is open to parents and grandparents.
The center serves as:
  • a unique community resource providing support and education to parents faced with everyday problems and concerns of raising children
  • a place where parents can spend time with their preschool children, seek advice from parent educators and socialize with other parents
  • a referral center where parents can receive direction to appropriate community resources
Parenting classes are available to parents on a very reasonable class-fee basis. Class discounts are also available to members of The Parenting Center. See Membership section to find out more. For more information, please call The Parenting Center at (504) 896-9591 or send an e-mail to
