Mindful Nurturing Parenting classes are appropriate for everyone—parents, foster parents, grandparents, teachers, CASA volunteers, and anyone wanting to interact with children more mindfully and with less stress. 

The Nurturing Parenting curriculum is recognized by the National Registry of Effective Programs and multiple federal and non-governmental agencies for its effectiveness in offering support for personal growth and promoting strong families.
