          The classes are designed for parents, teachers, and caregivers. The classes meet training hour requirements for foster parents and meet clock-hour guidelines for day care providers.
          Swartz’s parenting class is from the nationally renowned Love and Logic Institute in Colorado and in Hopke’s class, participants will learn about physical fitness and nutrition for your family and you will learn tips on how to get your children to make healthier food choices.
