families come for fun, learning, and growing together. Each county’s Center is unique, supported by a mixture of private donations and public funds, and with its own “personality” (for example, Beaver Dam’s Center is called “Parent Resource Place”). However, all five provide a variety of core services to families, including:
A Lending Library, packed with toys, games, videos, books, cassettes, and other resources for fun and learning for children, expectant & and new parents, and families or individuals
Parent Education and Support, including workshops on all areas of parenting and family life, and group and individual support for maintaining personal and family health
A telephone “Warm Line” and access to computers, the Internet, and other technology
Early Head Start and other family, prenatal, and early-childhood services, including home visiting
Family activities, including weekly playgroups, “Family Fun Nights,” and many other parent/child, parent/parent, and child/child opportunities!
