Child Care & Parenting
Resources In One Location

We nurture the development of children by building a strong foundation of family and community.

We know the first years of a child’s life are the most important developmentally and they set the foundation for a child’s future. 

Our thirteen programs serve to nurture the development of children by building a strong foundation of family and community. 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. Our work with child care providers focuses on improving the quality of child care programs in the county, increasing educational opportunities and the skill level of child care providers and we serve as their resource for professional development and on-site technical assistance.

Here are some ways CFRC can help:

  • Training and technical assistance for child care providers
  • Parent Education & Support
  • Educational Library
  • Scholarship Programs

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 recognize the importance of talking with children about race and equity–
often and from a young age! Our youngest minds look to their parents and caregivers to not only create safe environments so they can thrive, but to also give them the tools to process current events.

Having “The Talk”

When I think about having “the talk” with my kids, my heart races and I have anxiety about what I imagine will be an awkward conversation.  As I think about how that dialogue will play out, I am thankful for parent educators like my incredible co-workers at the Children & Family Resource Center, and other resources that will help make my “talk” to my children about sexual health a little easier.
