Child Care & Parenting
Resources In One Location
We nurture the development of children by building a strong foundation of family and community.
Here are some ways CFRC can help:

Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to be top of mind and we’ve been actively monitoring updates from the CDC, state, and county to help us manage this rapidly evolving situation. As we sift through the information, the continued texts and emails about adjustments and closures, there is an added level of anxiety and stress. We are having to adjust our own daily routines and coping skills while also filtering news for the littlest people who might be in the house and also finding ways to protect our friends, family members and selves. It is a lot.
We’ve created a “Coronavirus Family Resources” page featuring the latest news and events surrounding Covid-19, social distancing and hygiene practices, activities for schooling at home and more. Click here for more info.
We have cancelled our Week of the Young Child Conference on April 4 and are processing refunds. A new date for our fundraiser, “Biscuits and Jam with the Fam,” previously scheduled for April, will be announced soon.
Group meetings like IY, Circle, Nurturing Parenting, and professional development trainings are cancelled until further notice. We are making every effort to continue programs and services even if only virtually through apps like Zoom and Facetime for program delivery.
