Do you live in the towns of Rockland, Randolph or Holbrook and have a child age 18months - 3 years old? Our Randolph, Rockland and Holbrook ParentChild+ program is looking for families to participate in this fun and educational program. This program includes (2)- 30 min weekly virtual visits with an Early Learning Specialist. Each visit will involve an activity with a toy or a story. Your child gets to keep the toys and books that will be dropped off to your home.

What is ParentChild+?
ParentChild+ uses education to break the cycle of poverty for low-income families. We engage early in life and help toddlers, and their parents access a path to possibility. What we provide isn’t just early literacy, it is early opportunity. For families living in undeserved communities, we are a first step on the ladder to success. Their personal booster club.

If you live in one of the towns listed above and are interested in having your child participate please contact
