About Us

Knowledge that Nurtures is more than just a tag line. At Commonwealth Parenting, it’s who we are, it’s what we believe, and, most importantly, it’s what we do.

For over 30 years, Commonwealth Parenting has served as the Richmond area’s leading resource for parenting information, empowering parents to be the best parents they can be through education and support. Voted 2011 “Best Local Parenting Resource” by Richmond Magazine, we have supported a total of more than 40,000 families, or approximately 3,200 families annually.  Our family educators and accredited experts are committed to helping families thrive, offering hands-on instruction on a wide-range of topics through classroom and private session settings, as well as our Parenting Hotline (804-545-1928).

In addition, partnerships with local organizations and schools enable us to offer parenting education throughout the community in the form of guest speakers, workshops and special programming.
