Class Progression

For 32 years, North Central Parenting Group has followed a class progression that has proven to be most beneficial to members and instructors. We group parents by their first child’s age (as of Sept. 1).

Parenting a 3 month old is much different than parenting an 11 month old, so classes for the “little ones” were created for a much smaller age range. As our children age, the developmental differences between a few months lessens, therefore the age range in classes widens.

Of course, there are several variables in play:

  1. Progression may vary depending on your child’s birth date. If you child is the oldest or youngest in a class, you may not follow the same progression as other members.
  2. Member enrollment also affects class progression as the Board strives to have no class be too big or too small
  3. Please note that starting in Pre-K/Jr. Kinder you will be placed in class based on your child’s GRADE in school no longer age.

If you have any questions about your class assignment, please contact Please know however, we typically cannot allow special requests.
