Parent Education





The co-op is the best place in town to learn right along with your child under the guidance of early childhood professionals. When you enroll your child at Puyallup South, you enroll yourself in the Bates Technical College Home and Family Life programs.Over the school year, you will earn at least eight parent-education credits by attending parent-education meetings or participating in other approved activities. Most meetings feature a speaker addressing a carefully chosen educational topic.





Parent Education Opportunities Include:

  • Puyallup South sponsored events, i.e. Orientation, Parent Training, Friendship Festival, Science Night.
  • Quarterly group meetings with the Bates coordinator.
  • Monthly Bates classes on such topics as brain development, sibling rivalry, kindergarten readiness, etc.
