Parents and children learning and growing together…What fun!

Participating in Bellevue College Parent Education classes is a wonderful way to show your child that learning is exciting and something you value so highly you are committed to sharing the experience with him or her.

Our program offers a wide variety of classes, but each program combines two elements:

  • play-based learning with age-appropriate, developmentally stimulating activities for kids, and
  • parent education (for moms, dads, grandparents or nannies) and expert parenting advice that focuses on all the information you need to be the best parent you can be.
