The Center for Parents and Teachers (CPT) is based in Concord MA and serves the entire community, including interested persons from throughout the region, supporting families and teachers in what CPT believes are the most important jobs in the world: raising and educating children.
The mission of CPT focuses on:
- Providing programming that will increase parent effectiveness through high quality, low cost workshops and forums;
- Enhancing preschool and elementary education through professional development workshops, educational resources and classroom materials;
- Working in partnership with community associations to support the best possible community- wide environment for the healthy growth of children and families.
Our strongly held belief
We believe that our programming, both for parents and teachers, serves to elevate the entire community.
When compassion and civility are increased and practiced in the home and the classroom, children learn a better way of relating and bring these practices into the larger world around them.
When parenting programs are regularly provided in the community that offer skill building and strategies researched and proven to be effective, the incidence of students engaging in risky behaviors is significantly reduced.
