Family Resources of Natick provides FREE parent-child play-to-learn groups, drop-in play times, information about child care and preschool, help with the transition to kindergarten, child development resources, parenting workshops, the Ages & Stages developmental screening tool, a lending library of parenting books, and support, resources and referrals to all Natick families with children through the early elementary school years.
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 support during transitions to child care and preschool 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.
