Parenting Cottage Assists Families with Car Seats

The Parenting Cottage offers child safety seat education and assistance to families without financial resources to obtain a car seat for their child.

The classes are offered on a monthly basis with both day and evening classes available.

Families must  have a working vehicle with lap and shoulder belts.

Class size is limited and registration to attend the classes is required.  To register for the classes, a parent must know their child’s height and weight to assure the correct car seat is made available to the family.  Prenatal clients may call to register in their 6th month of pregnancy to attend in their 7th month.

Families must call to register at 795-7552.
