Out of an abundance of caution, Children's Hospital has made the decision to temporarily close the Parenting Center in light of the evolving COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. We believe this is the right decision to protect the personal health of our families and community as we navigate this rapidly evolving situation. We care about our families and members and will reopen as soon as we feel that it is safe to do so.
In the meantime, our staff is here to serve as a resource for you via the phone or email. Please feel free to reach out: phone 504.896.9591 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your understanding and support.
The Parenting Center at Children's Hospital helps parents and grandparents with the ordinary challenges of rearing children. Our staff of parent educators come from a variety of backgrounds to help families grow from birth through adolescence. The Parenting Center Provides classes, book and video lending libraries, and playrooms in two locations.
Watch our live parenting segment on WWLTV's cable network, WUPL 54, every other Tuesday morning at about 8:40 a.m.
The Parenting Center serves as a:
- resource center where parents can learn about child development and parenting skills
- support center where parents can discuss concerns with other parents and staff
- referral center where parents can receive direction to community resources, and
- PLACE to PLAY!
