Head Start and Active Families, A Powerful Combination
Active Relationships Center is proud to have been working with Head Start organizations for over 15 years. ARC knows that a better society begins with our nation’s children, and children’s well-being depends on the principles, life skills, happiness and support of their parents. It is for that reason that we have several programs, including one just for Head Start parents. We also have a program for entire families (ages 3+) who want to learn together. For Head Start references, feel free to call us!
Head Start and Active Families are a powerful combination, using an experiential evidence program with interactive lessons and games that allow caregivers and their children to have fun and learn at the same time. It is a flexible program where presenters/teachers can teach the lessons or use video as their co-presenter. Parent and caregivers involvement is always welcomed.
Professional certification training is provided ONSITE or VIRTUALLY. Call or email us to get started with building your training plan!
Learning for Parents and Caregivers
ARC’s curricula, such as Active Adults and Active Families, help parents and caregivers learn important information to help them stay connected with their children.
The first option is an adults-only class that teaches how to read and respond according to various communication styles and teaches skills for communication, compassion, forgiveness, resolving issues respectfully and even teaches skills for having fun! This class is called Active Adults and it will equip parents and caregivers with the skills to foster strong, healthy relationships. The program emphasizes the importance of integrity and stability to create a positive environment for both parents and children. Active Adults is available with a companion book Especially for Fathers. Tell our office when you order that yours is a class for dads, and we’ll include Especially for Fathers at no additional charge!
The second option, Active Families, involves Moms, Dads or caregivers and children age three and up TOGETHER in class! There is lots of learning, games, and building great memories and strong connections. The Active Families program is a great way to build a better, more meaningful relationship between parents and their children, with parents adding tools to their life skills set and practicing new methods that help create and maintain better, more supportive relationships.
