Child Care & Parenting
Resources In One Location
Our mission is to 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 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.
From pregnancy through the adolescent years, our programs focus on:
- Family Education and Support
- School Readiness
- Social Emotional Health
- Quality Early Childhood Experiences
Children and Family Resource condemns all forms of racism and discrimination. We recognize and challenge systemic racism and racial violence that is damaging to all our children and families, but which disproportionately harm some more than others.
It is our hope to live in a world that is just and equitable for every child and family. We affirm our commitment to build our internal and external resources and, with humility join anti-racist community efforts and invite others to join us.
