Parent Cafés

Parent Café Events

At a Parent Café event, parents bring their children and enjoy a delicious meal together. After, children will have separate activities set up for them with quality childcare staff, rated by Youngstar to ensure a safe environment. During this time, parents will discuss different parenting topics in groups. Throughout the time together, the groups will rotate and continue discussing various topics that parents are interested in. Parent Café events are listed on the Community Calendar



YoungStar is Wisconsin’s child care quality rating and improvement system. We give parents the tools and information they need to raise happy, healthy kids. And, we help preschools, home-based programs, learning centers, and other child care providers give children safe, nurturing places to grow.

How do we do it?

  • By objectively measuring child care quality. We rate thousands of child care providers, awarding up to five stars for the best quality of care.
  • By giving parents an easy way to compare their local child care options and find the programs that match their family’s lifestyle, budget, and special needs.
  • By supporting providers with tools and training to deliver high-quality care
  • By setting a consistent standard for child care quality
