Nurturing Families is a collaboration between Head Start and the MV Family Center for any parent looking for a quiet moment to talk with other parents about parenting issues and child development. This multi-week series requires pre-registration and offers onsite childcare.

Nurturing Families emphasizes the importance of raising children in a warm, trusting and caring household. It is founded on the belief that children who are cared for develop the capacity to trust, care for, and respect themselves, other people and living creatures, and the environment.

The philosophy is founded on seven principles:

  • Feelings of Attachment
  • Empathy
  • Nurturing
  • Oneself,
  • Gentle Touch
  • Discipline
  • Expressing Feelings
  • Expectations and Self-Worth

Free childcare provided –  family snack & activities
