Parenting Education Groups

Forty Carrots offers a variety of groups addressing families’ needs throughout the many stages of a child’s development from birth through age 5: breastfeeding clinics for new mothers, parenting education for families with infants, play-based parenting groups for parents, caregivers and children, discussion groups to build trust and support among parents, and parenting education groups helping families involved in the court system work toward reunification with their children. Forty Carrots’ Parenting Education programs are held at Forty Carrots Parenting Center, area nonprofits, public schools and libraries in Sarasota and Manatee counties.
