About Us

Mission Tuesday’s Child enables families to thrive through positive parent training, inclusive therapeutic classrooms and support services. Our proven model impacts home, school and the community.

About Us Tuesday’s Child is a nonprofit organization established in 1980 at Children’s Memorial Hospital by Dr. Victoria Lavigne, a clinical child psychologist, and Katherine Augustyn, an early childhood specialist. In 1984, Tuesday's Child was incorporated as a 501 c(3) nonprofit organization.

Tuesday's Child combines parent training and a child center for families experiencing difficulties like non-compliance, bedtime or mealtime issues, and socialization problems. Tuesday’s Child has a tradition of three decades of community service through the education of parents in positive behavioral techniques. Our long-standing philosophy is that it is the early relationship between parents and children that builds the foundations of both a strong family and a successful future for the children.

At Tuesday's Child, families find support, parenting skills, and education tools to strengthen their lives. Our programs help children at risk of early academic failure and children with behavioral concerns make a successful start at school and at home.
