Family Resources of Natick is a Coordinated Family and Community Engagement program funded by the Department of Early Education and Care and administered by ACCEPT Education Collaborative. Our objective is to provide comprehensive support to Natick families with young children through a combination of direct services and referrals.
We work to promote family education, literacy, school readiness and engagement in the community, and maintain a safe and enriching space for families to play and meet other Natick families.
FRN can provide assistance in finding appropriate child care and preschool placements in Natick, including information about financial assistance through the Commonwealth of MA. For families with children approaching Kindergarten age, we provide information and events to supplement the screening and registration process from the Natick Public Schools, including parent workshops and support. Families can call or visit us to be referred to a comprehensive range of services and resources in the Natick community.
Please note that we follow the Natick Public Schools’ closings for inclement weather during the school year. If the schools are closed, all FRN programming is cancelled, including offsite programming. If schools are closed for a portion of the day due to inclement weather, check our CALENDAR for specific programming changes.
