NYSPEP'S mission is to promote and improve parenting education, in order to enhance parenting skills, knowledge and behavior.


In 2006, a team from public and private New York State agencies came together to consider how to increase families' ability to nurture positive development in their children, part of the newly created Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems (ECCS) plan. They convened a statewide forum for parenting education providers to present the plan, and the New York State Parenting Education Partnership (NYSPEP) was launched.
