Parents are children’s first and best educators.
We recognize the primary responsibility of the family in educating children, and the School is committed to fostering a supportive community of families. Therefore we aim to be an extension of the Christian home—a resource to help parents fulfill their God-given responsibility. In today’s information age, it can be overwhelming to know who or what to trust with regards to biblically-based parenting. Providence strives to be a source of helpful and godly wisdom to parents. Below are some of the ways we come alongside families to mentor, build community, and offer support in this educational endeavor.

Offered to the mothers of our Prekindergarten through Class One students, our Mentoring Moms events take place three times a year and are a chance for moms of our youngest students to hear relevant and helpful topics. The teachers of those grades attend as well, continuing to cultivate sweet friendships and mentorships between the teachers and mothers.
To aid parents in the great task of raising children, several times a year Providence offers free events for parents and the Dallas community. To view upcoming Parent Education events and watch recordings of previous events, visit our Community Events page.
We invite you to listen to Pastor Jimmy Evans of Gateway Church as he discusses the keys to successful marriage as described in Ephesians 5. Pastor Evans does an excellent job of explaining the differences between men and women and how our sin natures drive us away from each other. We hope that this resource is an encouragement to you and your spouse as you seek to pursue oneness in your marriage.
