Infant and Toddler Play Groups are the core of a myriad of family support services, reflecting a two-generation approach. FRC faculty and staff have been trained by the Brazelton Touchpoints Center at Harvard University and have integrated their strength-based approach as a foundation for working with families. Playgroups are led by a Child Development instructor whose goal is to promote the relationship between the parent and child and to create a system of support for the parents.
Staff utilizes a case management approach and connects families to targeted college, as well as local community services. The FRC serves as a college instructional lab for nursing and child development students, which includes high schools students who learn about the importance and methods of supporting the entire family when working with young children.
