Program Description

The Waterbury Family Center is part of the neighborhood hub system detailed in Waterbury’s Bridge to Success. Responding to research which shows children need effective and nurturing families capable of offering joy and physical and emotional support, the Family Center offers programs and services designed to promote healthy child development and improve parent opportunities and skills to get them actively involved in their child’s education and healthy development. The Family Center is co-located with our licensed, NAEYC accredited Early Childhood Education program serving children birth to age 5.
