Free playgroups are offered at Broad Brook Elementary School in the FRC Room A6 and are staffed by the FRC certified Parent Educator who is trained in the Parents-As-Teachers curriculum.

Our parent educator also administers the Ages and Stages Questionnaire, a screening tool that will provide a quick check of your child's development. The information you supply will help reveal your child's strength, uncover any areas of concern, and determine if there are community resources or services that may be useful for your child or your family. The questionnaire may be completed at the Family Resource Center or at your home. The Parent Educator also completes personal visits, utilizing the Parents as Teachers curriculum, focusing on the child’s development, with resources and activities.
