Welcome to Parents' Place! Parents' Place is an award winning Parent Education Program of The Pacific Grove Adult School. Offering weekly Age-Related Classes for parents/caregivers and their children ages newborn -3 years and specialty classes for newborn- 5 years. Our Parent Education programs at the Pacific Grove Adult Education Center were designed with one goal in mind: to help parents help their children succeed. Our two distinctive parent education programs - the pre-school Co-op and Parent's Place - not only provide appropriate developmental experiences for children but emphasize effective teaching and parenting skills to assist and improve their children's academic success. This is largely attained through parent cooperation within the classrooms, reinforcing time-tested parenting techniques and best educational practices.
