On January 9, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, Scott County will sponsor the parent education and support program PACT (Parenting All Children Together) for an eight week series. The program is financially supported by Scott County Kids Early Childhood Iowa. PACT is designed to educate, and support parents and caregivers of children age prenatal through five years old that reside in Scott County.

“Parenting is the most important job we will ever have. This series will bring together parents and caregivers who want the very best for the children in their life,” said Jennifer Best, Extension Educator and PACT instructor.

For participating in the PACT program member will receive a free meal at every session, free child care while adults are learning, a free gift at each session, transportation to get to the sessions if needed, $40 worth of items chosen by the participant if they attend at least 6 of the 8 sessions, fun and friendship with other families, and great information for parents and caregivers to help their children be all they can be.

For more information about PACT or to register, contact Marisa at the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach office at (563) 359-7577 or mbloom@iastate.edu.
