Child Care & Parenting Resources
In One Location

We improve children’s lives through parent education, quality child care resources and leadership on children’s issues throughout the community.

We know that the first five years of a child’s life are the most important developmentally and that they set the foundation for a child’s future. Our parenting programs work to create positive, nurturing relationships between the child and the parents and break the chains of negative behaviors and parenting techniques. We focus on developmentally appropriate behaviors and activities so both the child and parents feel prepared not only for kindergarten but for the bright future ahead of them. The ten programs and one scholarship offered at the Center focus on improving the quality of child care programs in the county, increasing educational opportunities and the skill level of child care providers, and preventing abuse and neglect through intensive parent education, ensuring a healthy start in the child’s life and helping them reach their full potential.

  • Parent Education & Support
  • Educational Library
  • Scholarship Programs

From columnist, Renee Kumor: There’s a lot to be said for success. And we can find success in a lot of places. Sometimes we make it, and sometimes we benefit from it and sometimes we all bask in its glow. Like the evening I joined many of my friends at the Children...
