Family Learning Center

The Family Center Resource Room offers parents of young children a place to access computers for self-directed study if they are working toward a High School Equivalency Certification (once referred to as the GED but now known as the HiSET) or for job searches and resume writing.

The Family Center Resource Room is available Wednesday mornings from 9:00-11:30 and by appointment. Parents participate in adult education classes and will have access to a computer supported tutorials covering all topics as well as some job skills training.  Although we no longer offer onsite child care, the staff at the Family Center Resource Room can help parents in finding child care as needed.

The purpose of the Family Center is to support parents in their role as their child's first and best teacher. The staff of qualified educators and home visitors work together to support individual family goals.
