The Topeka Public Schools Parents as Teachers Pine Ridge Center at 1100 SE Highland celebrated its first birthday yesterday with an open house, punch and birthday cake.
The center’s success over the past 12 months is attributed to the many partnerships that formed to create Pine Ridge and to operate the center. Multiple families and children take part in the Parents as Teachers Program each week that provides playgroups and activities that help prepare youngsters from birth to three attain the skills they will need for learning. Programs for parents are available including parenting skills and a computer lab to help parents find employment.
The Pine Ridge Center staff looks forward to another successful year of providing early childhood programs to the families of east Topeka.
