School Readiness Programs

Early Care & Education Projects

The Family Resource Center Child Care Project is working to improve the quality of early learning environments and promoting school readiness in Audubon, Carroll, Greene, Guthrie, Hamilton, Humboldt and Wright Counties. It is incredibly important to us and the community we serve that each child is completely prepared to learn. From behavior coaching to technical assistance to playground safety checks, we want every child to be in safe hands. Each of the projects is funded by local Early Childhood Iowa grants to improve the quality of childcare in early learning environments.
