To offer high quality, flexible, and inclusive instruction in child and family studies for individuals pursuing paths in human services, education, and parenting at Clark College.
We serve Clark College students, faculty, staff and the community at large. We believe that learning best takes place by doing, whether you are a child or an adult and there are curriculum components for both parents and children enrolled in our programs. We believe that parents are the primary teachers of their children and we can best help children by helping parents. By providing a rich, supportive environment from which choices can be made, supplemented with guided experiences, observations and discussions, we carry out this philosophy. Our program is respectful to all families, regardless of race, religion, economics, cultural identity, family configurations, and developmental and physical abilities.
