The Parent Cafe

The Parent Cafe is a free, weekly opportunity for parents and caregivers in Southern Wisconsin to talk with each other. As we connect, we find resources and gain skills that can make our families happier.

Each Parent Cafe is hosted by an Extension Educator from Southern Wisconsin and lasts one hour.  Participants can join via phone or video-chat, with connection information provided after you register.

To accommodate different schedules, sessions are offered on Wednesday mornings from 9-10am or Thursday afternoons from 1-2pm.

Important! Please register prior to The Parent Cafe to receive connection link & phone number:
