The Parent and Child Center

Our mission is to promote and support healthy families.

At Bristol Hospital’s The Parent and Child Center, they strive to support every family that comes through their doors by providing information, programs, and services that assist parents in raising healthy and happy children. They offer seven different service options and would be happy to help you find the right program for your family. Programs range from learning about pregnancy and being a parent, to teaching your children literacy skills, to classes on healthy foods and a healthy lifestyle. Need family guidance? Try their Family Life Works program to take parenting education and child development classes, or their Nurturing Families Network program which provides assistance and supports new first time parents during pregnancy and beyond. Want to learn at home? Positive Parenting Program (or as they refer to it, Triple P) provides an in-home parenting education that will help increase parenting skills as well as focus on parenting and child development issues.

The Parents and Child Center offer’s much more than just classes for new parents though! Experience their community garden and classes on cooking and nutrition, health, gardening and shopping for food on a budget through their Family Wellness program. A perfect program to help ensure your family is not only healthy but happy through fostered relationships between nutrition and food! Looking for a program to help foster your child’s skills before school? Try their Play and Learn Groups that helps families meet other parents and children age 5 or younger to develop school readiness skills prior to entering Kindergarten and The Family Reading Adventure program for children ages 3 to 5 to help teach early reading and literacy skills.

In addition, they also offer a program called The Caring Closest, a diaper, and clothing bank for low-income families with young children. The Parent and Child Center aim to promote and support healthy families. Start a program today to gain resources, a positive community, and most importantly ensure your family is healthy, and happy!
