The North Suburban Child and Family Resource Network supports all parents, caregivers and educators of children prenatal through entering kindergarten in Melrose, Stoneham or Wakefield as well as other surrounding communities.  Funding is provided by a grant from the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care through the Wakefield Public Schools, in collaboration with the Melrose and Stoneham Public Schools and Hallmark Health System.  Additional funding sources are a variety of grants and generous donations from our families and supporters.  Our goal is to help parents and caregivers create a healthy family environment as well as to promote family well-being through education and community support. The Family Resource Network provides parent education workshops, playgroups, support groups, family activities and information on parenting and community resources.  The programs help parents and caregivers build connections that will extend beyond the Family Resource Network.  Resources for services for older children are also available.  If you are not on our mailing list and would like to receive future mailings, please call (781) 279-0300.
