EDWARDS — The Family Learning Center has announced that it has received a $20,000 Daniels Fund grant to support the implementation of a Parent Empowerment Program.

The Family Learning Center provides affordable, high quality, early childhood learning using developmentally appropriate practices in a safe, healthy and nurturing environment.

The Family Learning Center is honored to receive this grant from the Daniels Fund. It will enable the Family Learning Center to strengthen its family partnerships and give parents positive strategies to support their children through important developmental milestones that occur between the ages of 8 weeks to 6 years.

The Parent Empowerment Program will enhance the home and school connection by providing home visits for all families.
