Child Care & Parenting
Resources In One Location
We nurture the development of children by building a strong foundation of family and 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 thirteen 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.
Here are some ways CFRC can help:
- Training and technical assistance for child care providers
- Parent Education & Support
- Educational Library
- Scholarship Programs
