At Village School, we want to help parents navigate the child-rearing waters by providing the most recent research on how children think, learn, and grow and what best practices might be for preparing them for an ever-changing future. To that end, we provide an assortment of speakers and events. Select parent education events are open to current parents, prospective parents, and their invited guests. Parent Education events for the 2016-17 school year will be posted here in September 2016.
