Children don’t come with an instruction manual, but we have great resources that can help you become the best parent you can be. Do you have questions about discipline, potty training, kindergarten readiness, car seat safety and nutrition?
Our resources will help you answer your questions, and will also help you every step of the way—from pregnancy until your child enters kindergarten.
Parents are a child’s first teacher. And since 90% of a child’s brain development happens by age five, that is a big responsibility.
We offer the following programs to help you:
- ChildLinks: Provides free Child Care Referrals and Parent Lending Library memberships.
- Child Care Subsidy: Assists families with child care expenses through a subsidy available at the Department of Social Services.
- Parents as Teachers: Offers parenting support, positive interactions and child development information through play groups, home visits, group meetings and connections with additional community services.
- Nurse-Family Partnership: Introduces vulnerable first-time parents to caring maternal and child health nurses.
- Family Resource Guide
