Bellevue College’s Parent Education program offers parent-child classes and cooperative preschools in safe, fun, nurturing environments located in the cities of Bellevue, Carnation, Issaquah, Mercer Island, Renton, Sammamish and Snoqualmie and Online. Classes focus on one of several distinct age levels: babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and kids up to age seven, with curriculum designed specifically for each stage of development.

Parents face tremendous challenges and dilemmas while raising a child. Bellevue College Parent Education classes are designed to meet the needs of today’s families. Our classes provide community and a shared learning experience for moms, dads, and those who work with children. Skilled college faculty teach these classes and also serve as a resource for an individual parent’s concerns. Along with the parenting class are play-based children’s programs featuring activities that provide active learning experiences for parents and children supporting the development of creativity, literacy, math, science, physical ability and social skills in young children.

Our offices have moved into the new T Building.
