Family Resource Centres
There are three Family Resource Centres which serve the Anglophone South School District region. Family Resource Centres are funded through the Community Action Program for Children and the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. There are three offices located in Sussex (Kings County Family Resource Center), Saint John (Saint John Family Resource Center), and St. Stephen (Family Resource Center of Charlotte County) (https://familyresourcecentreofcc.ca/)They also offer a number of outreach programs in rural areas of our district.
Family Resource Centres offer a variety of free programs and activities for parents and their children ages 0-6, including drop-ins, parent education and support groups, collective kitchens, prenatal and postnatal nutrition programs, toy and resource-lending libraries and programs to promote parent-child communication and bonding, family literacy and child development and safety.
