Beech Acres Parenting Center honored 43 Cincinnati families graduating from the center’s Toyota Family Learning program. The three-year program encourages parents and children to learn side-by-side, outside the traditional classroom.
The graduation ceremony took place at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.

Beech Acres Parenting Center was awarded one of five 2014 Toyota Family Learning grants for its family-based approach to learning. The $175,000 grant has created opportunities to further family learning efforts through community service, technology use and family-to-family mentoring. This year’s graduation showcased the efforts and accomplishments of the program’s final class.
