The goal of the Family Enrichment Program is to advance the development and kindergarten readiness of children 0-3 years of age while developing parents’/caregivers’ education and abilities as their child’s first teacher by:
1) providing a high quality parent/caregiver and child learning environment
2) improving the development of children
3) improving parenting skills, knowledge of child and brain development, building social connections of parents/caregivers.
Program offers bi-weekly classes for parents and children to support and strengthen families.
The Family Enrichment Community Program (FECP) is a volunteer led program whose purpose is to enrich parent and child interaction. Parents who have participated in the center-based family enrichment program are recruited to become Parent Facilitators.
Parent Facilitators undergo a three- month core training covering: Child Development, CPR, Protective Factors, Leadership skills, and Lesson Planning. Additionally, Parent Facilitators also attend ongoing monthly workshops and support meetings.
FECP Groups meet once a week for the duration of two hours. Each group is composed of children ages 0-5 years.
