The Staff of the Family Resource Network wishes you and your family a wonderful holiday season and a healthy 2017.

Young children bring such joy to this time of year. The colorful lights sparkle in their eyes and bring a smile to their face. Family traditions and time spent together are what children will remember in years to come. The greatest gift we can give to our children is unconditional love.

Though holidays are usually joyous celebrations, they can also make us sad. We are here to listen, to talk and even share a hug. Hugs are a wonderful gift, one size filts all, and something that you can enjoy no matter if you are giving or receiving the hug.

Enjoy the time, treasure the memories and have a safe, healthy, and happy holiday season.

Together We Can Make a Difference.

Ages and Stages Developmental Screenings:  As parents, we want to know that our child is on track developing and learning all that they can. Through the Department of Early Education and Care, we have received access to the Ages and Stages Developmental and Social Emotional Growth questionnaire. The Ages and Stages screening tool is a great way to learn more about your child’s development.  You complete the questionnaire based on your child’s age in the comfort of your own home, and then return the information to the Family Resource Network. Once completed, you and a staff member can review the results and see what we can do together to help your child reach their full potential. If you have any questions, please call our office at 781-246-5187. 

Childcare and Preschool Information:       http://www.eec.state.ma.us/ChildCareSearch/EarlyEduMap.aspx

Our office has a checklist of what to look for when visiting the sites. If you would like to see if you are eligible for financial assistance, please call. A staff member will be happy to speak with you about any questions and concerns.
