Early Learning Programs
The CRC strives to help children, families and
communities thrive and connect.
The Family Support Program at the CRC is a warm and inviting place where families and individuals are welcomed and encouraged to participate in programs designed to support and enhance a nurturing and vibrant community. Our staff and volunteers provide individual support, skill building, and resource information to people and families in our community at no cost. Achieve your family goals. Attend playgroups, parenting classes, and learn about what resources are available to you.
New to the Community Resource Center in 2023, the Early Learning Programs are no-cost opportunities for young families to play, learn, and prepare for kindergarten. As part of the Making Life Work collaboration the CRC is leading the way with the 360 Kindergarten Readiness initiative in the Stanwood Camano community. Programs are open to children (0-5 years) and their grownups.
Early Childhood Education & Development Registry
Children from birth to pre-kindergarten who live within the Stanwood-Camano School District are eligible to sign up to receive a free individual learning kit from Lakeshore Learning valued at $159 to $179.
The Early Education & Development domain of Making Life Work is implementing a community-wide initiative to better prepare children, birth to age 5, for kindergarten throughout the Stanwood-Camano School District.
Whether children are at home, in childcare, or in a preschool environment, it's important to meet them where they are. We are taking a multi-pronged approach to be able to benefit as many children as possible.
We have four overall objectives:
1. Increase access to early education tools, programs & resources for all families.
2. Create community-wide programs to encourage and reward early learning and literacy; create a community culture that values early learning.
3. Provide health & wellness support to young children and their caregivers.
4. Remove barriers to learning.
