From the Publisher:

Raising Children With Roots, Rights & Responsibilities is designed for two-hour sessions. Each session follows the same time format: The first hour includes parent-child interaction time and a community circle where families gather for songs and information sharing. The second hour is a planned parent education time where adults focus on the topic in one room, while the early childhood educator helps the children practice skills for living in a democracy in another room.

The curriculum can be adapted to any setting where families gather to learn. Such groups as Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE), parenting classes, child care centers, family child care homes, faith communities, YMCA/YWCA programs, scouts/campfire groups, neighborhood and play groups, community schools, after school programs, and home schoolers can use this curriculum.

This curriculum is best suited for children ages three to six, their parents and educators. Children younger than three can attend and will enjoy the activities.
