The Livingston County Health Center of Chillicothe will host a free class series for caregivers to connect, network, and enhance their skills.

The Smart Connections classes will be held in the Children’s Department of the Livingston County Library in Chillicothe every Friday morning in June from 10 to 11 o’clock. Anyone who provides care to children can add tools to address behaviors and increase connections with the children.

Classes will include Managing the Ups and Downs, Reading the Signs, Creating Comfort, Encouraging Growth, and Feelings Detective. Maternal Child Health Coordinator May Taylor will instruct the series.

Parents and caregivers interested in the classes should call the Health Center at 660-646-5506, visit the health center website to register. Registration cards are also available in the Livingston County Library’s Children’s Department.

Smart Connections complements the Trauma Smart program implemented in the Chillicothe R-2 School District in kindergarten through fifth grade. The Livingston County Health Center, the Chillicothe School District, and special funding from the Crittendon Foundation fund the project.
