We have a great lending library for both parents and professionals. The double doors lead into the playroom. Playroom is where most parent/child classes take place. It is also where the child care for classes is provided.
The Family Room opened in April of 2014 after more than a decade of visioning. The dream was to create a gathering place for families to find support and community, an high quality information about birth, children and parenting.
In America as a whole, we do a lousy job supporting parents through the most critical and demanding time of parenting. The first few years of a child's life should be full of enriching experiences with a parent by their side.
Unfortunately, due to bad policy and economic need the first years of a child's life are a juggling act. Managing child care, work schedules, family time, and rest many families are left depleted and without much joy in the experience of being a parent.
We hope to counter some of the stress with actives, groups, classes and community out reach. Because we know finances can sometimes prevent families from getting support. Our Non-Profit division will be launching in 2016 to provide out reach and scholarships to families.
To Create an Environment of Community and Support, Where All Families Feel Welcome.
To Provide High Quality Evidence Based Education and Support Services to Families with Young Children.
