Through the Department of Early Education and Care, we have received access to the Ages and Stages developmental and social-emotional growth questionnaire. This screening tool is a great way to learn more about your child's development. You'll get a snapshot of your child's current skills and development, fun and free activities to help your child play and learn, and information about any recommended next steps.
We're very excited to be offering ParentChild+, a home-visiting program that gets your child ready for school. This program is funded by the Department of Early Education and Care.
Be SMART about Gun Safety
Secure gun storage saves lives. Firearms are now the leading cause of death among children in the United States. That’s why it’s more important than ever for parents and caregivers to know how secure firearm storage works. It’s simple. To help keep your family safe and prevent tragedies, it’s crucial to secure your firearm.

The North Suburban Child & Family Resource Network supports all parents, caregivers, and educators of children from birth through age eight who live in Lynnfield, Malden, Melrose, North Reading, Reading, Stoneham, Wakefield, and Winchester, as well as other surrounding communities.
